My 9 year old pug has a seroma on his right back hip. It was drained once due to discomfort.
It’s now filled back up over the last few days. We’ve been monitoring it since our vet doesn’t want to drain it unless it’s absolutely necessary.
It’s really big. It’s pulling the skin down with the weight of it.
How is it possible for the body to heal the muscle area where the space exists when all that liquid is in there and stretching the skin?
He is eating, drinking and seems fine, but he’s having trouble walking with the weight of the liquid he’s now walking around with.
Is it dangerous at any point? Is there a time where it’s too much fluid in the area?
The space was cause by a car tire. He was grazed in our driveway. The skin got separated and me has formed a seroma. He is recovering well from the experience. He’s on antibiotics for the cuts he had and an anti inflammatory.
Thank you. 🙏🏻
