My 5 month old American bully has a fluid filled sac on the back of leg. He had this sac on his other leg 2 months ago and the vet drained it, now he has this same thing on the opposite leg. They think it’s Seromas but want us to go to a specialist that is over an hour away and we dont have that kind of money. We love this pup and are trying very hard to keep him healthy…please help us understand what is going on and what we need to do to care for our little pup!
