    abscesses usually aren't dangerous, an anti-b injection can be enough, if it bursts, clean the area with warm salt water and cotton wool.

    the fur usually fall out in the affected area but grows back.

    occasionally if the abscess is very large it might need lancing and a few stitches.

    It really could be anything, a trip to your Vet would be the best thing. As for cost, sorry cant help with that one,
    I would be looking at £35/£40 mark at our Vets, that would include any meds needed. But thats just our Vets, they are all different. xx
    RIP TJ. You my be gone, but never forgotten. Always in our hearts xxx
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
    You are his life, his love, his leader.
    He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
    You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

    might have been a tick? my old cat used to get tiny white ticks on her face, i would pill them off with tweezers.
