How long has Misha had this swollen area? Is it a lump, like an abscess, or is it more a growth that is swollen? Are you able to send me a picture?
More of a growth found it tonight
Has Misha been licking at it at all?
Can you take a picture of it?
looks like a red wart
Does she have any others elsewhere on her body?
does she need to see the vet, is it this strange illness I have heard about?
Certainly "warts" (usually they are sebaceous adenomas, rather than true warts caused by a virus) can get swollen and bleed. But generally they show up and then don't do anything for awhile. But if it got scratched or something, it can get inflammed and possibly infected.
I don't think this is indicative of any strange illness-what disease were you thinking of?
If there is pus and redness/swelling, however, she may need antibiotics.
Ok thank you. I will take her to my vets tomorrow.
The hi bi scrub you used was a good idea. If it is open and draining, you can also put some 3% hydrogen peroxide on it. But if it isn't improved by tomorrow I would definitely take her in.
Your service was very good and put my mind at rest with reference to the question I had.
I will use your service again if I need help out of hours in the future.
