Customer Question

His armpits are red and his groin area is all red. He keeps licking these areas and I've been spraying hot spot spray on him for a couple weeks now. It's not getting any better and now his butt is red looking and there's a large mass the size and shape of a pinky sticking out under his tail and above his butt at the 12:00 position
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Raylen, he's about 11 years old and weighs 75lbs. He's still eating and I changed his food after I first saw the redness
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Raylen?
Customer: He's a catahoula sheep dog mix of some sort and has not had any similar issues before. I can send pictures if possible
