I saw your video on how to deal with an abscess and I tried it, and some little white stuff came out first, but with blood. Then, I squeezed more, but only blood comes out and the more I tried the more he was pulling away, and I figured it was just hurting him, so I stopped. I stopped also because the abscess didn’t seem to get that much smaller after I did it several times. I made an appointment with vet, but they seem to charge a lot more than what your video said, like over $200. Also, I don’t want him to have surgery if that’s what they suggest for two reasons, I don’t want him under and I don’t have the money. I have been unemployed and without unemployment benefits yet since March. What do I do if they say he needs surgery? The dog you had on the video, his abscess looked a lot worse than my dog’s; if that dog didn’t need surgery, why would mine?
