Ok...so, here we go again...I DO love my new job but I am busy, busy, busy...I've only had a bit of time to come on and take a quick look around here in the last few days...

Indigo has a lump on his paw...I first noticed it last week...wasn't much...thought it was allergy like some of Pua's stuff has been...but, now it looks like this?!?!?!



It's hard and as you can see...there is no hair on the lump itself...it has gotten much bigger and is very red! I am just wondering if cortizone is a reasonable response or if we are looking at something more serious!? Poor buddy...he acts like it hurts to the touch!

Try the Antifungal cream on it (like athlete foot medicine in a cream)...and make sure he leaves it on long enough without licking to do some good....I say this because a ringworm can produce some raised round reactions called

Aaawww, the poor little guy!
I'm trying to remember what Rocky's lick granuloma looked like.  I think it was quite a bit bigger than that.  Try to keep him from licking it or it may turn into a lick granuloma.  Those things are hard to get rid of.
