i need advice to try and get my ill dog to a vet in eastern cartert county, NC.

I am a widow and i receive ss disabilty and food stamps. bleeding golf ball size mass

she is older than 10.. mass and other bumps forming
the bleeding is now worrying me. i cannot afford surgery for her but i can't let her suffer and bleed to death. she is eating. drinking sleeping and trying to cleanse wound. not in extreme pain but hides when i tried to bandage her. any help
.please

That's a tough call, I'd get the dog to the vet, maybe it doesn't require surgery but it needs to be seen at the very least.

you should take your dog to the vet. they should have 24hr vet clinics open near your neighborhood. its best to take it as soon as possible.

It sounds like a cyst or a hematoma, which the doctor would simply lance and drain. Honestly my dog had an aural hematoma (blood-filled ear bubble) and if you find the right vet, they may not even charge for the procedure. The emergency vets can be really expensive and tend to opt for the more expensive procedures, so I would avoid them. One option is to call your local animal shelter, they will normally know of at least one low cost vet for people in your exact financial situation. Just figure out which vet you want to go to, and call them to let them know you're a new patient coming in with a bleeding dog. You'll be fine.
