yeah it's a cyst, both neck and on the rib. they are both healing up pretty fast. getting smaller. i'm happy and so is the dog. only troubles is putting tablets in him everyday. went right for about three days now he hates... sometimes makes little yelp noises when i hold his jaw - i hate doing it to him. so i just wrap the tablet in peanut butter and cross my fingers. usually he gobbles it up :)

I'm glad he's doing better! We had a hard time getting pills into dakota. We'd be SURE he swallowed it and then out it would come, on to the floor.

Now we smush some cheese all around it. He eats it with no problem. Thinks he's getting a treat so he probably swallows it whole.

I was going to suggest you wrap in a piece of cheese, or, if a powder in a capsule, mix it in some really good can food and give it just before his meals. I'm glad to hear he's on the mend.

Aww well glad to hear he's getting better. My dogs are smart enought to eat the cheese around the pill and spit the pill back out. Even if its dog food, hotdog, whatever. So we have to open their mouth, shove it way far down, and stimulate them to swallow.
