What is this?
5 Attachment(s)
Can someone please help? Our girl is 7 1/2 months. We recently (this past week) discovered a rash like/ dry scabby/ hairless spot under her right arm. Now that, I just figured was a hot spot or rash & did not freak me out as much as the lump that was also there. I checked it a few days later and it was like two lumpy spots. We scheduled an appointment at the vet for tomorrow. The past day or two the lump isn't so lumpy as much as it appears to just be sagging skin?? Along with the dry scabby hairlessness. It hasn't seemed to bother her when we touch it or move her arm. I totally forgot about coconut oil... So I applied some tonight after reading around. I tried taking pictures...

I'm terrified and sick to my stomach about the vet appointment tomorrow. Especially since I cannot be there due to my job. :/

looks like dermatitis - could simply be a skin infection. Hard to tell from the pictures.

I'm sure your girl will be just fine :) Just see what the vet says

The vet says it just looks like it's from her walking harness. I used the coconut oil and it has healed up tremendously!
