What We're Learning Today - Vet Science

Jorgen, as I have written, has a large swelling on his buttocks, between the cheeks. Today, we are going to try to treat it. The test results show an infection that is granulated. The vet said it is a new one on him, never seen anything like it. The good news is that it isn't cancer. We don't know what caused the infection. There doesn't seem to be a foreign body, as it lacks an entrance point. Such a wound usually presents a hole that stays open and some pus. This is a completely closed sweling. What we are going to do today or possibly tomorrow, is sedate him, clean out the swollen area of infection and give him antibiotics.
