As some of you may remeber i got a GSP pup about three months ago. Well about two weeks ago my year and a half year old lab got tired of him messing with him and they got in a fight. The pup got his ear tore up pretty bad and we ended up having to put him on antibiotics and other things. Last Sunday i cam e back from out of town and the pup had developed a "lump" on his neck. It ended up getting bigger and harder to the size of a tennis ball. Needless to say we ended up at the emergency vet and they diagnosed it as an abcess. They prescribed stronger antibiotics and pain killer for him. Today we had a follow up appointment with our regular vet and they were pretty concerned with it. They wanted to cut him open to "explore" what it was. iI expained that the last two weeks have cost me $1300 and i could not afford much more. All three vets looked at him and the x-rays and are now concerned that it could be calcinosis circumscripta. Has anyone every dealt with this? The vet was explaining that the surgery can have some pretty good complications if it is in fact this disease. Thanks in advance for any info.
