Q. Siberian husky 10 yrs old. Had green seepy stuff coming out both eyes and developed large hard mass. It popped and bleeding bad. What do you think is?

Answered By

A. It sounds as if an abscess (infection under the skin) has formed and is what you are seeing. Green discharge from the eyes is usually another sign that infection is present. Abscesses will grow large in size suddenly, be hot to the touch, may break open and ooze blood or debris and can be very painful. These need to be drained and treated by a veterinarian, and then a course of antibiotics should be given to remove any remaining infection present. It is best to schedule a veterinary appointment ASAP to get your dog taken care of.
