|BlueMule||I am not a Vet tech, but I am an RN. It looks like MRSA to me. We had a lot of it in the prison where I worked and it CAN be healed with two simple Antibiotics, Bactrim Double strength (DS) and Doxcycline. Must be given 1 pill each, twice a day (per human doseages). I say this as it can show up and open and drain within only a few hours. Get the dog to the vet.|

|huntergreen||hopefully its just a herpes b complex ulcer, this means it is viral, but i am not a vet or vet tech. i totally understand the money thing, i dont think this is an immediate life threatening event and waiting till the vet opens should be fine. an elizabethan collar would be a help. in regards to the money thing, you need to start looking into pet insurance, dump sat or cable and that might cover it.|

Care Credit. It looks bad.
This is beyond 'home vetting' with neosporin...but morning ought to work, just don't fiddle with it any longer.

See if you can find out about payment plans or CareCredit. I understand the bills thing. I just put $300 on my carecredit account that I don't have because one of my dorks managed to rip a good chunk out of his leg coming up the back stairs. Good luck.
