Guest OldManDixon Posted January 27, 2016 Share Posted January 27, 2016 I have a male greyhound, Dixon, who will be 12 in April. He's doing really well for his age and is generally very healthy. On Sunday, I noticed a small, crusty spot on his side, about the size of a quarter, that looked like he had glue stuck to his fur; the fur seemed stuck to his skin. There was no wound that I could see, and it didn't bother him. I just figured he rubbed up against something. Over the last few days, it's gotten bigger (about 4" x 3"), and now it's definitely a sore. It's still crusty, his fur is still stuck to his skin, and it's very painful. It's not swollen at all (you can feel his rib cage directly under it), but it's very smelly. He's got an appointment at the vet tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm worried about him! I've never seen anything like this before, so I thought I'd post a couple pictures and see if anyone has any ideas. The only ideas I have are horrible things like cancer... Thanks for any help you might be able to share! Dawn Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
