Well the just in case happened. Carl was giving the big guy a bath and started hollering at me to "look at this". He let Dozer out of the tub and brought him downstairs. What I saw scared the crap out of me. His little bump swelled about 4 times its normal size and looked ready to burst.
See? (and this is after two days of meds)
I took him to the vet. They said it was a cyst and had an infection but nothing to worry about. It isn't a tumor thank heavens. Plus he has a double ear infection.
So for Christmas (and his birthday which is Christmas day) my baby is on an antibiotic, an inflammatory, and ear drops.
Bless his little heart - and foot.
