Tesa is going to the vet today. She's got a weird looking sore of some kind on her belly toward her inner thigh. I first thought it was a tick...but it's not. I also thought maybe it was an irritated nipple...but it's more in the fold of skin inside her inner back leg. I took a pictue of it. I am worried and hope is nothing serious. Why is it when we are worried about our furkids....the vet appointment seems like it's forever away.

I will let you know what I find out. Keep your fingers crossed for us. :crossfing

No idea what that is - but I'm hoping it's not serious and the vet can ease your worries!

Looks like a staph infection to me. That's super simple to clear up. We're fighting one too! Good luck!

Just got back from the vet. It was nothing serious! :) She must have gotten bit by a bug or got a sticker there or something. The vet pulled the scab right off. It hardly bled at all...maybe a drop. I was going to pull it off yesterday...but I figured I better wait just incase it wouldn't stop bleeding. She did give me some antibiotics because it was irritated and red around the scab. So...glad the worry is over. Tesa did great and the staff loves her. She enjoyed getting a checkup...especially when the vet was checking between her toes for foxtails....I think she could have fallen asleep. :--sleep:
