Hello all,

I have a two year old cull that my pine year old daughter brought home from a fair. She has always been playfull, and healthy thus far. This morning I had her strethed out in my lap, trimming her nails and giving her a rubdown.

While inspecting her I noticed that on both sides of her genital area, burried deep in her fur was a strange looking spot. After fishing my way through her extremely thick fur, I fould rather large gaps that look like holes in the skin.

There is no discharge or oozing of any kind. There is however a little chunky yellow around the edges. It looks like nothing I have ever seen before. and has no smell by the way.

I am searching for a vet in the findlay area. Just wondering if anyone has any idea what this is in the meantime until she gets in. I will try to get her to let me have a pic as soon as I can.

Could they be her scent glands?

Sounds like her scent glands need to be cleaned.

Yep, They are large though. I could put my thumb down in it.

Here's what I found in the RO Library regarding scent glands.

Hope it helps.
