Hello,
I would be worried that the licking is an indication of pain. Limping can be indicative of many things to. like injury, illness or Orthopedic issues. Please see a vet about this. There is no other credible advice I can give from here.

My 9 Year Old Pug Has A Seroma On His Right Back Hip. It Was Drained Once …

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. 🙏🏻

Hello, In general I address seromas this way; if it isn’t infected or causing the patient problem I leave them alone. It takes time, often weeks to months but the body will reabsorb the fluid slowly and without incident. If it is a problem a drain can be placed in and around the pocket. But this comes with possible consequences. Like every surgery has risk. It requires anesthesia. There is a charge and a risk with this. Opening a sterile pocket to place a drain allows for the introduction of bacteria and can lead to infection. That’s worse than a… Read more »

If you did not get any paperwork with your puppy, I would make an appointment with your vet immediately. Let them know he is brand new and has no records.

Hello,
Find a vet who will help you. I often cast these guys or splint them. It is a longer process but we save many legs for clients who otherwise could t afford them. Call and keep calling. Get the leg splinted immediately.

Hello,
Please provide more information. Like what is bleeding? It is best to see a vet if you think this might be an emergency or if the bleeding persists or is severe.

Good morning. Is this a wound? Or is it raw from irritation? Allergic symptom? Depending on what the cause is, the treatment is different. My suggestion would be to get him to the vet right away to find out what is going on, but in the meantime try to get him comfortable.

Good morning Do you know if your dog has gotten into something and eaten something the shouldn’t have? For example the trash or table food? Or is this a situation that started out small and has gotten progressively more intense? It is difficult to offer advice if we don’t know the possible cause of the situation. If it is an upset tummy, I would help him ride it out and once he is feeling a bit better, reintroduce bland foods (such as boiled chicken and rice) a little bit at a time. Make sure he has access to water at… Read more »

It could be allergies, or it could be a parasite, or something else. Your best bet is to have your vet examine it and check your pup over to be sure. Best of luck!

I agree with sarah. Please see a vet. Bumps can be just about anything. But I always start with suspecting fleas first.

Hello? If you are adding another dog into your home, I would strongly advise that you have your existing pup well trained. It will benefit everyone involved. Honestly, the better behaved your current dog is, the better the example will be set for any newcomers. It sets the stage for everything. If your dog is exhibiting undesired behaviors that you ar concerned about, I would get that sorted out before adding another dog into the mix. My advice would be to enroll in a dog training class and after you are comfortable with your success there, then decide on adding… Read more »

PLEASE wait until your existing dog is an ADULT before bringing another puppy into the home. PLEASE.

Also, male dogs do not go into heat like female dogs. Please do research on basic biology of canines.

Male dogs humping things could be because he isn’t fixed, and if the new puppy is female, yes he will try and hump, maybebif it’s a male too. I would definitely get them both neutered or spayed and that could solve your problems. Some male dog will continue the behavior afterwards, it just depends on the dog.

Have you looked her over thoroughly? I would put her on crate rest for the day, and see if she improves. This means she isn’t allowed out except to toilet, and she may only toilet on leash. Feed her in the crate.

I would definitely get your dog in to see the vet.

Pugs have breathing difficulties as part of their conformation – their noses are very short, and depending on the structure of your particular puppy’s nose, your puppy might not be able to breathe well at all. I would ask your vet about this, to be quite honest – they have seen your puppy and can tell you better than we can.
