Took my English Bulldog (Bella) to the vet today for swelling on one of her paws. The doctor doesn't think that the swelling/growth is a tumor - but he took some samples and we should hear back within the week if it is something cancerous or if it is just an abscess. If it's an abscess, antibiotics will be able to treat it.
Because of her age (4) it is a possibility that it might be a cancerous tumor - and it if it is (and is malignant) - he told me that she may need surgery. Because of the size of the area - if it comes to surgery - the whole "toe" will have to come off....which sucks! Meanwhile, I have to clean it 2x a day with some solution they gave me. Will let you know more as I find out.
