    Default What is this?

    I need some good advice. Hopefully my bully friends can help me with. My sweetie has a booboo under her right arm, in her armpit, vet at this time wants to cut it off. Im not good with this. It looks to me as an infected hotspot, but I'm not sure. Ive never seen anything like this . Any ideas? Its about two inches across, it bothers her if you mess with it. Ive been cleaning with iodine bath and mupirocin and anything else i have. I need help -image-jpg -image-jpg

    My Cassie had a similar sore like that and the vet said it was a hot spot. Gave me "Genta Spray". I sprayed it on her 2x a day for a few days and it stopped oozing and healed quickly after that. He said that hot spots need to be kept dry and the gentaspray dries quickly... It's a bad place for a hot spot - Cassie just got over another hot spot in her tail pocket...that took a month to heal.

    Ouch!!! Oh my, looks like it is completely opened up....and may require a stitch or two if you don't start to see some progress. Flushing it several times a day with the deluted iodine (or betadyne) will help, but from this view it looks like possibly the skin has torn open. I would also think spreading a good amount of panalog on it would help. If you can find a way to soak some gauze in the iodine solution and wrap it for a day or two I think that would help, but due to the location of it that could be tricky. Poor baby!!!

    Its not like a wound per se its more like an ulcer so stitching it together i don't think will work plus where its located she would pop it open What do you think of vets advice? I will try to get some panalog all out now....any suggestions on how to keep dry?

    Maude had a spot that looked like this, on her side. It was a spider bite. Try the panalog 3 times a day. Or neomyacin.

    It is definitely an infection of some sort, and possible a spider bite. I would not play around with it much. Did the vet give you any antibiotics? If it gets worse just a little bit, get her back to the vet and let him take care of it.
