    Default EMERGENCY!!

    I am freaking out! I just realized Ulysses has pus coming out of what it seems to be a little hole next to his belly button. He seemed fine the whole day and yesterday, just now I tried to hold him and he whined a little,...I don't know what or when could have happened,.... any ideas?? I'm on my way to an emergency vet since its pretty late here already. I'm thinking injury or some sort of bite?? its red around and feels hard, but he doesn't let me check properly...oh God

    Aldo had an abscess like that in exactly the same area.. except it did not leak.. and was smaller than you are describing.. but I'm thinking it could possibly be the same thing.. they drained it and gave him antibiotics.. keep us posted!

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    I agree, it's an abcess, the vet can drain it and clean it up and maybe give some antibiotics for him. He should be fine.

    We are back! You were all right it is an abscess, the "little hole" it's actually bigger than we thought and it started leaking a lot of that yellowish liquid + blood. The vet cleaned it as much as she could, because the inflation is apparently really big. She says it looks like a bite, hard to say from what but most probably a tick or some sort of fly. She injected him with antibiotics and put a bandage with a dark red solution that smells like BBQ. He is now wearing a bandage/dress to prevent him from liking it and the bandage to fall. She said it is hard to say whether the insect is out or not, so tomorrow we gotta go back and see how it evolves, if it's not better they gotta open it and see what is inside there. Thank you so much for all the support and the excellent advice. I was so scared, I just hate to think that he is in pain. Love this site!
