Customer Question
My dog has a...

My dog has a growth that was checked three years ago and was benign. But now it seems to be opening up and draining a little. I’m not worried about clear liquid but the opening of the growth. What do you think?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

I can send you a picture if you want.
