Scabby bit

Heskey has developed a scabby bit on his ribs. I cant see that he has injured himself (though may well have done while trashing the house....hes stopped!). The hair has come off it around it, do you think i should be worried? It doesnt seem to bother him at all, but covers an area about the size of a 5p.

Re: Scabby bit

Sounds like the same thing Sasha has under her neck Liz, except hers spread all underneath the area. Nothing looked particularly sore, mainly dry and scabby, almost like eczema, but without the reddness?

I have been giving Sasha 1300mg of Evening Primrose Oil three times a day and her coat has never looked better. The dryness is starting to clear up, the fur is growing back and she looks white - oh so white!!

I have a fantastic new FREE service through my insurers called Vetfone. We can call any time of the day, any day of the year without having to visit the vets. We get to talk to a vetinary nurse for advice, so if anyone ever wants me to use it for them - just holler!!

It sounds good Karen. Is it through your pet insurance?

Re: Scabby bit

Yes Helen it is. I insure Sasha through Direct Line and they are trialing this service - sounds great to me, especially with a boxer!! Its basically NHS 24 for pets, which means if they are acting weird in the middle of the night etc, or a Sunday aft, at least you can get some professional medical advice without it costing you 19 just to step into surgery!

On Christmas day it was so worrying because she had eaten all that chocolate, and we really just needed some advice, but to call a vet out on Christmas day, well we would probably be in debt for rest of year!! This would have been perfect for us!

Let us know how Heskey gets on Liz

Re: Scabby bit

Were heading off to the Vets on Thursday, so will see what that brings. Starting to feel like im living at the vets again as had to rush the Archie (the cat) there yesterday morning as he was looking unwell, wouldnt eat (and believe me hes a pig) had been sick and couldnt go to the loo. Poor thing has cystitus and now has to be on a special diet for the rest of his life. As its prescription only, god only knows what this is going to cost. Why oh why do i never have the sense to insure these creatures?????

Re: Scabby bit

Sounds like one of our cats, he had some kind of crystals in his urine (bit like a cat form of gout) and has to have special food, once he started on it he was a different cat, and our other cat refused to touch his own food so they're both on the special one. I find that a 3.5kg bag of dried food lasts about 3 weeks, costs 21 if I remember correctly.

Re: Scabby bit

Just to let you know its some kind of cyst, so nothing to worry about. Could have it operated on but cant see the point in putting Heskey through that for purely cosmetic reasons.

Re: Scabby bit

Hystiocytoma Liz?? Sasha has had three and had them all removed.

They can be left but sometimes they go a bit sore and scabby. Its not a big op to have them taken off.

Re: Scabby bit

For what it's worth I would leave them alone if there not bothering him. With Boxers squished faces and reduced breathing, Every op is dangerous.

If it's not broken dont fix it!!

Re: Scabby bit

Re: Scabby bit

Sasha's grew really quick and both times the vet couldn't be 100% certain that it was a hystiocytoma, which is why they were removed. He took the one off her face while she was getting another removed anyway.

Must admit, I did think about them staying put but the option wasn't there for her!
