Laceration, maybe hot spot or from hot spot? Never seen this before.
I've seen some pretty bad hot spots. On a goldens neck, so bad: full of puss, red, hurting, itchy horrible.
Or my sisters dog, near her anus, she got lots of hot spots up her tail. Shaved and gen one worked for both..
I noticed the past maybe few days, Zelda licking herself. I checked it out to see if there were bumps or anything from her food allergies.. Maybe i thought it could be anal gland problems like being swollen- like what our little beagle gets sometimes..
When i came home from work today, i checked again. This time i found a hole the size of a penny. It was red around it and for inches up to her tail.
We shaved the area, cleaned it, and i have her some benedryl and made an appointment tomorrow at the vets after work in the afternoon- she is also wearing an e-collar, poor girl it feels so weird now she hates the feeling!
I want to say it maybe a hot spot and she has all day to lick it and she opened it up? Still seems weird to me, bot fly or something? (EW! I recently had to help take i believe it was 18 maggots from a laceration in a kittens leg and than the other kitten it was on its anus.. quite clear the perfect size for maggots to go in and out and we took what we could.. the one with the leg laceration lived, the other did not)
All i can picture now.. is maggots crawling out of her laceration. Its quite clean, and also doesn't look very deep- so i am really hoping its not that and perhaps something that i can treat well. And i have the appointment for tomorrow.
I just am wondering if this sounds like anything you guys have ever heard of?
