There was a small bump on my dog skin and my aunt said she squeezed it, but the wound is quite big that we think she may cut it. Now the wound is healing but the skin on the wound is black. The dog is fine but should I be worried ?
My puppy was spayed over 2 weeks ago @ Banfield in SC. She had to be taken back a week later because her glue on the outside spread a part. They then put staples in her. We noticed on the top of her wound there was a “scab” it never went away so tonight we examined it and it was a suture knotted up from the inside that had dry pus & skin. Around her scare on the left side is a hard, swollen mass that you can see whend she stands up. She seems to be in pain should we take her to the hospital now?
My 1 1/2 year old german shepherd has somehow cut his main paw pad. It is a clean slice that has pierced the pad layer. It bled the first day and now only bleeds very slightly every so often. I have washed it with antibacterial wound wash and bandaged it daily. There are no obvious signs of infection but he does seem to limp much more with the bandage on as supposed to when I let it air for half the day. I have been washing it for 3 days now and it has started to fill out but seems to be swelling.
Should I keep washing it at home or does it need immediate vet treatment? He is his very normal, silly, excited self but his limp is very noticeable. Just confused as to whether it is obviously sore due to the fact he is stepping on it every second, or it is the start of a nasty infection.
When I was grooming my cat I accidentally cut her skin. The wound doesn’t look deep and is not bleeding. Is it safe to use Neosporin ointment on her wound? The wound looks like a small tear.
My 2 year old husky has some type of wound or absses maybe, I’m not exactly sure what it is, but it’s on his back paw. It’s bothering him and it hurts him.
My 11 years old dog just had pyometra surgery on May 3rd, stayed in the clinic and got discharged on 6th. When she got home she still oozing out fluids from her stitches and the doc said I only need to clean it up and try to push the skin a bit to let the fluids out, also we got an ointment to be applied on the stitches to make it faster to dry. But just yesterday (9th) we kinda discovered that there’s another fluid came out from her vagina as well, I asked the vet and he didn’t say anything, I just googled and found out it’s probably a remains from the post-op pyometra. I’m just unsure why there’s still vaginal discharge eventhough it’s already 7 days post-op? for the first day she came home, we didn’t know that it’s very forbidden that her to not lick her wounds, but it happened already and now her stitches are still wet (we clean it up continuosly, sometimes let her wearing a towel wrapped on her body).
*My concern is: * She still doesn’t want to eat, at all. She was already losing appetite around 7-10 days before surgery, but at that time we thought it’s because of her heat so we only gave her vitamins and keep force-feeding her with baby’s porridge. After surgery until now (7 days post-op), she doesn;t want to eat, and literally becomes lazier and doesn’t want to do anything other than sleeping the whole day. Sometimes she would get up to pee but that’s just it. She also had difficulties to poo, I’m not sure is it because she barely eat or what… she only ate a very small bowl of porridge that we force-fed her.
Expression wise she looks pretty healthy, I feel like her eyes are ‘alive’ and generally pretty happy. She’s still sometimes responding to us by wagging her tail, or barking when a stranger came into our house. But she’s lazy in general. I wouldn’t say ‘weak’, because her eyes are just bright. Sometimes she also breathes weirdly, there’s a weird noise as if there’s something in her nose. But there are times she doesn’t make a sound o_O it happens especially when she’s sleeping peacefully.
I really don’t know what to do, I have a very difficult time to bring her to the vet because we don’t have a car and this is a big dog. None of the vets are willing to pick up either. Please let me know what should I do…. thank you.
Attachment: The reddish color in her stitches are not blood, it’s the ointment the doc gave us. The fluids looks a lot in the photo, but it’s because it’s been left to sleep all night and this morning we opened the towel to clean it up, so I took the photo first. I meant to show you the most fluids, because on average since we clean it up and also there’s a towel, so it’s not flooding like waterfall.
I found a stray cat and I plan to keep it but it has this..
I’m extremely worried, I took him to 2 vets and both gave me different diagnosis, one told me it’s a wound, the other said it is fungal
I would like to know what it is and how to treat it..
The cat is 10 months old and mixed
My dog got in a fight with a pit bull yesterday and suffered from a puncture wound in his mouth …I can’t afford a vet what can I do for him at home
my red kelpie and Irish wolfhound were running up and down the fence barking at the noise of the motorized whipper snipper when they collided well they took to each other, well after the scrap both dogs had minor injuries except for the Kelpie. He is very healthy and active but the thing I noticed was a cut upon the bony part of the shoulder more like a two inch scratch I treated that with antiseptic Salvon cream and then gave him some antibiotics called Amoxicillin but only for three days, what he has now is the wound has healed and the scab is starting to fall off but there is a bulb of fluid, well that’s what it feels like, should I just let his body deal with it and see ? and should I give him any more antibiotics? One more question I have two little dogs these are house dogs and took them to my vet and asked what would be the charge to cut their nails and clean their teeth well I might be a sucker for rescuing four dogs each dog cost $385 each that also covered their needles. I had a look at their teeth and seen a build up of plaque on their back teeth, so hold the dog and push his lip up (she charged me $80 for the look and quote) and she said ok it will cost $1300 dollars to do both of them this doe’s not included any extractions if needed it will incur an extra $180 dollars per tooth all I can see is two teeth on each side at the back that are affected is this vet on the same planet as normal folk. thanks for reading my email I hope you can give me some advice thank you ever so much in advance HANK.
My dog had to get stitches about 2 months ago. Everything went well and the wound healed quite nicely. But today I looked at his wound and now it’s swollen with a liquid inside of it. It looks like a bubble.
