    Default What could it be?

    I was holding ruthie, I put her on the bed, picked her up and noticed a blood stain on the bed. I checked around and saw she was bleeding from her shoulder. I took her to the bathroom and got some tp to clean it and a whole bunch of puss and blood came out. I trimmed back the hair and while blood was gushing out with puss I noticed a small hole where it was coming from. This came out of no where, she was at the vet Monday. I haven't felt this before seeing blood coming out of it. It's like a huge knot on her shoulder. Any clue what this could be? A cyst? Ingrown hair? I'm taking her to the vet in the morning

    Hmmm… that's weird. Probably an ingrown hair, or maybe her & Brutus were playing and he got a bite in. I would clean it out real good, and check it in the morning...

    Hi, I agree with everyone else, it could have been an ingrown hair that you didn't notice under her hair, and it got infected, and finally just popped, a cyst, or like Tracey mentioned, maybe she got bit in play, and it got an infection in it. Since the blood and pus came out, I would clean it good with hydrogen peroxide, and put some Polysporin on it. Check it in the morning, and if you're still worried or if it looks infected or red again, take her to the vet to have it checked out. Depending on if it still looks infected, or how deep the hole is, she may need antibiotics to clear up the infection. I hope it's nothing serious, and Ruthie is okay and it heals up soon. Please keep us posted on how she's doing and what the vet says. Hugs and prayers for you and Ruthie.

    Great suggestions above, could also be a small abcess, if you can soak it with warm compress to releive the puss out if it you may not need a vet visit. Do you have any betadyne?

    Had this happen with Nitschke once.... it was an infection from a bite (Banks ) that we never knew happened.


    Please let us know what how the vet appointment goes

    This morning it was very hard, like smaller than a golf ball and seeped only a little bit. I cleaned it with Vertrycin and put some Mupirocin which i had conveniently left over from an abscess i had. I'm going to call the vet and take her in tomorrow. It seems a little sore today since i was messing with it last night so i thought it might be better to let it be. It also seems to be in the same spot where she had her tick bite MONTHS ago???? She is just breaking my heart, I can't seem to get her healthy
    Here is a picture of it and her cause i'm her mama and i love to share my sweet little girls face LOL.

    Oh wow a tick bite? I would definitely take her in then. Maybe some of the tick body was left in there, and that caused the infection… did they put her on antibiotics for the tick bite?

    She's such a cutie, Jennie. Really adorable.

    Could it be that the tick bite got infected? There's a spot on Blue's neck that had a tick. Our vet removed it, shaved his neck and cleaned it. The spot is still there and the hair hasn't grown back. It's also hard. Who knows what goes on with these babies.
    I would keep it clean and use the Mupirocin for now. Don't think the vet will do much more other than give her antibiotics.

    It was all the way back in fall when she had that tick. Do you think that could be the cause? I can't be sure it's in the same exact spot, but i know it's close. The vet said it was ok, no antibiotics and the hair grew back...this is just now showing up. I have felt nothing on her and i'm all up in her business all the time.

    Who knows what it could be? ingrown hair, tick bite, Brutus nipped her too hard, or even an allergic reaction to an insect bite.

    Like I said, I would just keep it clean and use the antibiotic ointment. If it doesn't start to clear up on it's own after a few days, then I'd probably see the vet.

    OK! Thank you! I'm worried for her. It's been one thing after another and i can't keep her on the right side of healthy.
