what breaks my heart is that my husband and i gave her some of those injections by that vet's orders. we were supposed to alternate under each arm. but one morning her normally grey underarms had turned BLACK... i freaked out at the vet, who at the very least didn't charge us for the return visit and gave us some cream to put on it.

because we were fortunately not told to do deep tissue injections, the necrosis was very shallow. it scabbed over and came off after maybe a week? and new skin was underneath.

this was a couple of years ago maybe, and she still has the pigmentation scarring i referred to.

the lesson i learned is to QUESTION QUESTION QUESTION your vet! i just hate that my junior had to go through that.
