Hi there. My 12 yr old has several sebaceous adenomas and until recently they weren’t giving her trouble. Recently one on her flank began bleeding and not healing so off to the vet. The vet said he could do cryotherapy but because he wouldn’t use a local we opted to see if it would heal and just leave it. It’s been a month now and it won’t heal. Our vet gave us quadritop so I’ve been using it and still it’s not healing but not getting worse either. She’s not licking it so that it isn’t the problem. The ointment could be the culprit. I have an appointment with a dermatologist in 2 weeks and if we remove it they do use a local anesthetic and or a mild sedative to calm her. Has anyone any experience with this? I would like to hear he good and the bad as I am so nervous. Hers is smaller than an eraser. The real issue is not the adenoma but the skin surrounding it is dark red and in a few areas it kind of looks open and raw. Would you all go to a dermatologist or would you just let your basic vet handle it? I just thought a dermatologist would be able to give her better treatment and maybe have a better more efficient treatment plan. Thank you.
I am not familiar with this problem. Check http://skeptvet.com/Blog/
Vets tend to participate, They can’t give you specific advice as they have not examined your dog.
My dog with allergies sees a veterinary dermatologist once a year. We are very pleased with the treatment.
We saw a couple of regular vets prior to going to the specialist, with less than optimal results.
