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 puppy, Herby seems to have a little sac of pus on his right leg, I’m a little concerned, he’s about 4 -6 weeks old what can I do?

    Hi Mayra, a little sac of pus sounds like it might be an abscess. Although they can often be resolved without any major complications, an abscess can also be a symptom of a more significant underlying disease and can also lead to a more significant and widespread infection. To ensure the best recovery for Herby, especially at this young age, I do suggest you bring him in so a veterinarian can take a look at what you are dealing with and make the best recommendations for treatment.
