Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • My dog hit his head near the inside of his eye. It caused a little cut, so I cleaned it, and then he was fine. Now it is big and squishy. I pushed on it, and some pus came out. The size of it will not decrease. What should i do?

    You need to take your dog into see his veterinarian immediately. The fact that you are getting pus out of the wound means that it is infected and needs to be treated. With the area being close to the eye, it concerns me that the eye may become involved. If it does, it could affect your dog’s vision and even cause permanent blindness.
