Dachshund Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 9/20/2007
I have a miniature dauchund that got lose one day. When we got it back, we noticed a bump on the back of her head. I thought that she had broken the skin from bumping her head. The bump has gotten bigger. I have been cleaning it with hydrogen peroxide and coating it with a triple antibiotic. The bump looks very swollen. We can't get the bump to decrease in size and it looks like it is filled with blood surrounded by thick crusty skin. We can't afford to take it to the vet. What are some posibilities

10/25/07 She needs to go to the vet. It is getting too large. It needs to be drained. If you do not know how to take care of it properly she needs medical attention because if it is an infection it can move on farther into her body and cause more problems. Sharon
