snake bite collage

This dog was bitten by a poisonous snake and a large piece of skin tissue died.  Initially, I surgically closed the wound but because it was in a high motion area the sutures did not hold.  How did I get this to heal from the before treatment picture to the after treatment picture in 10 days?

Foreign body abscess collage

This 1 year old Labrador Retriever presented to me for a 2nd opinion.  The dog was seen by another veterinarian 6 months ago for a smaller swelling on neck.  Veterinarian tapped the mass and removed pus.  Initially the swelling went down but it never completely went away.  The dog has been off and on antibiotics for about 6 months.  Swelling is getting larger and dog is not eating well.  What’s your diagnosis and treatment?
