    Hello,

    My dog has had a sore on her stomach for a couple of months. Lately, however it's become quite scabby and tangling in with her hair. The scabby bit comes away when it's wiped. It's not growing in size. It is darker than the skin with what looks like a narrow long crater in the centre and can bleed quite easily.
    I need some advice as to what it may be and if there's any thing I can do before using the vet as a last option.

    Thanks

    Been there for a prolonged time, bleeds easily and no sign of healing.
    I'd personally would have had this already checked over by a vet if it were my dog.

    If the sore has been there for a couple of months you really do need to get it looked at by a vet. It really shouldn't be a last option.

    .

    umm, a trip to the vet should be a FIRST option any time the issue is beyond 1st-Aid level. :oops: "Last" can put a problem off & make it much bigger!
    Sooner is generally better than "later", no matter what the issue might be. :)

    I agree with what others have said, you need to bring your dog to vet for a sure answer of your question. We aren't vets here so we cannot recommend medications for your dog. Hope everything will be okay. Please update us soon!
