Back of neck dog abscess

Hello, my dog was bit years ago, and it healed up. The groomer has on occasion cut it open. For the most part, it has been fine. But got cut open by the groomer and looks like a mess now. Sweet girl…Can you help, please?

Editor Comment:

The risk of an abscess being cut is that it can introduce infection into the wound and body. A veterinarian should clean and bandage the area and then apply a bacterial antibiotic. The abscess may also need to be removed surgically by first opening it followed by draining.

We would suggest consulting with your dog's veterinarian for treatment. If you need a lower cost option you can consult with an online veterinarian who can answer questions specific to your dog.

Best of luck,
