Last Thursday I noticed that Persil had a lump under her left front leg, with a bit of crust on it. As I was taking Ellie in for her blood test I took Persil as well, and Vet Haris thought it was just somewhere she had scratched, and not to worry. Over hte last few days I have been checking on it and it got no worse, but no better either, I had decided to take her back this morning, when I realised that it had got much smaller, so I thought, good, it is healing. Persil got very wriggly and I was alone so it was hard to see it properly. And then this evening when I looked I saw it has opened right up and I think has burst. So it is off to the vet in the morning, and meanwhile I have dressed it with cotton gauze and bettadine. But it was never hot and never seemed to bother her, even when I felt it. She had a nasty abscess under her armpit before, and we thought it was a reaction to a shot. Anyone have any ideas to share?
