Scottie het knoppie onder maagvelletjie

Ek het gister my 8weke oue Scottish Terriertjie gekry en het vanoggend agtergekom sy het ''n ertjiegrootte knoppie langs een van haar tepels onder haar maagvelletjie, dis bo vasgeheg aan die velletjie maar los onder en dit het so effense wit skynsel van bo-af. Kan dit ''n abses wees? Ek het vanmiddag vir ''n rukkie lank ''n warm wattetjie teen die knoppie vasgehou. As u dink dis ''n abses, mag ek Fucidin gebruik of moet ek dit net heeltemal uitlos? Sy is ontwurm en het haar eerste inentings ook gehad.

Hi Susan

It is difficult to say what the lump is without a visual examination. It could be from an insect bite, localized allergy, foreign body, small fatty mass/lipoma, abscess etc.

If it is not causing irritation then I would tend to leave the lesion alone. If you are unduly concerned then I would seek the advise of you local veterinary surgeon who will assist you in the diagnosis and treatment of the lump.

Kind regards
