Hey all, so Zelda has a black rough patch of skin on her flank. It doesn't seen to bother her at all, but it smells like a sewer. Has anyone had this happen before????

Never happened to me before, but maybe it's an abscess? Or could she have possibly gotten burned on an electrical wire?

I'd suggest taking her to a vet as soon as possible though.

Sounds like the skin over an abscess. Went through the same with Albus's abscess. It needs to be lanced and that skin can be removed (it will fall off regardless since it's already technically dead). You should take her to the vet asap.

It is indeed an abscess. It is now slowly healing.
