Mummy was trying to describe a part of me to the Vet over the phone but didn’t know what it’s called – so she started looking up charts of dog body parts and learnt a whole new vocabulary!!!! Intrigued, she went further to find out about our insides! And our skeletal system!May’s comment: What I was looking for wasn’t named! LOL! Darcy always had a little black spot on her vagina (that’s the unnamed part on the charts) but it seemed to have grown. A little concerned I called the vet and had to make an appointment to have it examined.
The vet believed it is some subcutaneous gland that excrete “something something” for their hair. Usually it just gets excreted and nothing remains but the fact that there was one spot there for a long time and then I noticed another became worrying. The vet did remove the “scab” and kept it in a test-tube. To keep an eye on the area for the next month and see if it happens again. If so, they would then carry out a test of the scab.
I’m not a hypochondriac – every time I sense something is cause for concern, I am always right. I hope not this time. The vet did say this was a normal conclusion.
