Hello and thank you for your question. I'm so sorry for the delay in receiving a response.

I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Can you attach a clear photograph leg and a video of the breathing?
2) Do you know what caused the original abscess?
