Hello, Ann. Thanks for your question.

I have a few questions:

1) Do you have any pictures of the area to share?
2) What antibiotic is Cole currently on, what strength and what frequency? Were these prescribed by this vet?
3) Any other medications that he takes?
4) Am I right that you found a tick next to the area a few days ago?

Thanks in advance for your additional info. I'll be with you shortly after your reply.
