Mom here: Gypsy Road and Jack have been itching like crazy lately. We have been treating them over the counter for it and they were given baths. Jack seems to be responding good to it, but Gypsy Road is still itching. He really won't let me get the medication onto the area that he is itching...on his stomach and around the sensitive area. Well, I went to try and put some on him this morning and noticed a hard, swollen area between his testicles and penis. His vet doesn't open until at least eight this morning...and I will be calling them then...but I am freaking out here. The fact that it's hard and swollen scares me. The last time I found something like that...was on Farrah and it turned out to be cancer. I can only pray to God that it's in relation to him itching, because I can't handle another furbaby with cancer. I'm already crying here because I am so scared. Auntie Kim took them both out this morning and she said that it looked like he urinated alright, but to keep my eye on him throughout the day as well as trying to get him in.
So if you can start the Power of The Paw now and pray that it is something simple, curable and easily treatable....we would really appreciate it. I did post what is going on in the Health Section as well, but if it turns out to be something worse than just a simple reaction, I don't know if I could handle it emotionally.
