I tried to keep the title as not-disgusting as possible, but fair warning, this is gross.

If there are any vets here, your input would be so valued!

Our dog has a cyst (near her butt) that we were planning to have removed during her teeth cleaning on Thursday. Today, we noticed that it bursted (hole in the center, looks fleshy). She's licked it a bit, but she isn't obsessively licking.

Her vet is totally booked until Thursday, and they suggested I put a cone on her until then.

Has anyone else experienced something like this? I'm afraid if "ignoring" it until Thursday, but I also know that bodies do a good job of healing on their own.
