    Gosh how frustrating for you - I'm afraid I can't add anything, he needs to see a vet, I assume that you only have the choice of 2 vets?

    If you are seriously concerned and he keeps this behaviour up for the rest of the night, I would really consider the emergency vets. We can't see him, and we are not the right people to ask for diagnoses, it's a shame that the vet last week couldn't provide more answers.

    However, I would continue with the meds, they are a broad spectrum antibiotic and sometimes they take a little while to kick in. Continue with them until the vet on Monday tells you otherwise.

    Just a thought - have you checked his backside? I've had occasion where I've had to pull a "raisin" attached to a long hair from their date, I am only alerted to it when they start running around like lunatics as though the devil is chasing them "Eeek, the turd is trying to kill me!"


    ETA : Just saw the photo, wondering if it might be a grass seed that's embedded itself into his skin?

    thanks for the advice! i really needed to get it out. we're all so confused here. There are other vets , we have so many animals and have lived around the state so we have had experiences with alot, but since the next app is so close , less than 2 days , ill focus in them for now... OH! also about the grass seed, Yes, i have heard about that and was curious ! because they're real popular round here at the moment, but i though the vet would have picked it up? ... although hasnt impressed us at all lately ha ... i have had a close look at it, the lump and there is literally no signs of marks or anything on it, its not even really red , just big!....you'd have to see it now =(

    If this were my dog and I couldnt get in to see a normal vet, I would be at the emergency centre.

    no, oh well he did look inside the mouth, the side of the bump and thats about it.
    i i forgot to mention the app was booked also for a full and thorough check-up now that hes a senior, i want to make sure hes healthy , but he actually forgot about this till we mentioned it! he was virtually saying goodbye .
    then he just felt his spine ?..... what about his eyes, ears? His gums? ......
    .....he kind of made a joke of it looking for knots in fur, after it came up about the grooming

    i mean, i do all i can to keep him clean, and healthy and i check him but IM not a vet, so how would i know if something was wrong? .x

    like i said that was the only time he did that, today he has been completely fine.

    i don't want it to sound like he is being neglected, he has been to the vet and has another appointment tomorrow.

    gahh

    First thing any vet worth their money would do is shave/clip the area to see if there is an entry wound
