Grass awn

Grass awn

This young dog presented with a small swelling on the jaw. She had been seen previously by another vet who had initially prescribed antibiotics. When she was seen at ARMAC, it was decided to explore the mass because although the antibiotics had helped, the mass had not completely disappeared. On exploration, a grass awn was seen to be the focus of infection. The awn was removed, the abscess flushed and a full recovery is anticipated.
