My Plott Hound had a large internal lipoma removed on Monday directly above his penis in his abdominal area. Almost immediately, he developed prominent swelling directly to, proximal, and distal to his operative site. In addition, he has swelling down his leg. Took him back to the vet where a needle aspirate was done. He was diagnosed with multiple seromas. There was no WBCs seen or anything else visualized under the scope to indicate infection INSIDE. However, externally, his skin is red and angry and there is a lot of swelling. He is on 2 broad spectrum antibiotics. He is having a hard time walking on his right leg. Took him back today (day 5 post op) because swelling is even worse. He has swelling all down his leg. Vet says it made sense to her because of gravity. My dog is in a lot of pain, can’t sit down. He put his paws down and his bottom stays up in the air. No one can even palpate his operate site without him going through the roof in pain. He is on Tramadol and an NSAID. I’m extremely worried. The vet isn’t a fan of the drain because she doesn’t want to create more room for infection. Ultra Sound showed no abscess. He is drinking a lot of water (more than usual) and urinating normally. His last BM was yesterday. Eating mostly fine. Low grade temp. Does this sound all right? I hate that he is suffering. The pics I have included were yesterday, not today. But you get the idea of the areas of seromas and erythema. Today, the swelling is worse and his entire leg down to his paw is fluid filled.
My indoor cat has a sudden swelling on his chin that is painful to the touch, because we have had a stray cat causing problems, I am guessing it is an abscess. I do have injectable antibiotics (farm living) and am curious if that is something that should be done. Unfortunately due to recent circumstances I am unable to travel to or afford the vet. He is monumentally important to me and I would like to take care of this ASAP. Can someone help with what to do please ?
My cad have abscess on her head what can I do? Which antibiotics will you referring?
My cat was diagnosed on Monday with an abscess most likely from dental problems. My cat was given an antibiotic shot at the appointment. The abscess has not gone down. How long does it typically take to go away?
Hello! So i just took home a pup, he’s an 8 week old cane corso. The breeder had his ears cropped a couple weeks ago and slowly started to noticed a small fluid filled “lump” on the back of his neck between his shoulder blades. He had called the ear cropping vet as well as his regular vet whom didn’t seem concerned most likely a seroma. They prescribed an antibiotic just to prevent an abscess as well as sending me home with some dimethyl sulfoxide cream. The first couple days we had him at home we didn’t use the cream because it made his breath smell and now the small lump has grown to the size of an orange. It’s still soft, doesn’t seem to bother his besides some itching, and he’s still very playful. Ugh it’s just making me nervous! I have an appointment with the vet for his final shots in a couple weeks. Just looking for some advice to calm my nerves or if i should go in sooner.
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?

I have a 15 y.o. cat who was attacked by a feral cat and I treated 2 abscesses and they healed–now 2 weeks later one has re-abscessed. I’m a retired doc on a fixed Army pension and vets here in Hawaii charge $100 just to be seen, not including procedures! Can I puncture the abscess with a sterile scalpel and drain it myself again or did I miss something? The local pet store sells OTC Abx. Would I treat as a person–same staph type Abx?
