Callus / Lump and white liquid
 
Hi all

Sara has quite a large lump that i thought / think was a callus on her front elbow.

It has been ok until day before when i noticed her licking it. I noticed a tiny bit of blood on a small patch of it.

Come today, when she got back from her walk, i checked on it again, and it looked like there was dry milk like substance on it. I cleaned it and put some rubbing alcohol on it. I then covered it with a damp make shift bandage, which is actually a cut up sock. I have tried to moisturize the lump lately then cover it with this sock. She just eventually pulls it off her self.

When pressed, after i noticed this white substance, more would ooze out. It eventually stopped.

Does anyone know what this is? Is it a cause for concern?

Cheers

It sounds like an infection has set in. I would recommend a vet visit.

The bump could be from laying on that side a lot - that's a pressure point area.

Can you post a picture? Still think a vet appointment is a good idea.

Thanks for the reply.

I have noticed the lump has gotten smaller.

I thought it was a cyst as it matches the profile of one.

I have millions of them myself loll.

Here's the pics.
