I want to know what can cause a small subcutaneous clear fluid build up under a dogs skin on the lower abdomen?
My dog is 2 year old.
About 10 hours ago I noticed a bump under her skin which very much reminded me of a blister, its watery movement and the skin bubble where it sat.When I would press it, she did not react.I should mention the location of this seems to be where her leg joins the abdomen, that large joint. And it's sitting at centre and little to the right of it. It is about 1.5-2 quarters long and 1 quarter wide and oval shaped the long way parallel to the inner fold of leg/abdomen.
When I checked it last about 30 min ago, the site is pink and it seems to have ruptured? as the prominent shape of this fluid is not so visible.When I pressed this last time, my little girl did mind.It was clear she felt uncomfortable. I do not know her history as she was found a stray 1.5 years ago. (I would like to mention that she is approx 7 lbs, and is actually a Maltipoo with predominantly Poodle features).
Money is tight (we have 3 cats, all pets are resuces).
Thanks all very much.
