This weekend Colt got tangled up with another dog. At first it looked like just a couple of puncture marks, nothing really bad. You could tell he was a little sore. Today I came home from work and noticed a fist size lump on the side of his neck/shoulder. I decided to give it a day and see if the swelling got worse or better. I went and ran some errands and when I came home Colt was covered in blood on the side of the lump, but the lump had gone down a bunch and was hardly noticable. He seems to feel and get around much better also. I am thinking that the lump was an wound under the skin like a giant blood blester/buise type thing. Anyone ever seen something like this?

Robby the lump was because he was not draining and is probasbly in a spot he can not lick . Once it built up enough pressure it let go . You may need to pull it open and let it drain flush it with peroxide use a seringe and flush it good .If you got to the fish store buy some fish mox it is amoxicillin and treat him for 4 or 5 days he will be fine and just keep it drained .10 mg. per pound of dog every 8 to 12 hrs !! Sammy said you better get him healthy !!

Tell Sammy dont worry he's going to be fine! Were still getting a little drainage but he is back to his ornery self. He didnt care much for the stylish t shirt he got to wear though.

Or you can put Nitrofuizone(sp)on it from the feed store. No measuring required and if he lost any hair it will grow back. It is a great topical antibiotic just wash your hands right away.
