Re: Yucky swollen toe

Thank you! I'm just waiting for her to get hungry. It's unnerving when a chow hound won't eat...

Re: Yucky swollen toe

7 days of antibiotics and 2 days of soaking. The pic was from abt 1 am. We just got back from the vet for her lump removal and while she was under he looked at the toe, checked for foreign matter and cleaned it really well. He said he thinks it's a trauma injury. Looking at it now, even after he mes...

Re: Yucky swollen toe

After a few days of epsom salts it's not as angry looking but I don't think the swelling has gone down much.

Hopefully the vet will figure this out when we bring her in in a few hours...

Re: It never rains but it pours ...

So I went back to look at pictures and this is the first one I have of it. I thought she poked herself on a scratchy weed or something. But I took a pic anyway. http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b361/askshana/Pups/DSCN0230tw.jpg Then the scab fell off and left a dark mark, not raised. And one day wh...

Re: Yucky swollen toe

TY!

We have had a lot of weeds this year and I was thinking maybe one of those got her dunno. Now I'm a little less worried abt her toe and more worried about the thing on her belly!

It never rains but it pours ...

We went to the vet today to have him look at Peanut's swollen toe. I then showed him a place on her belly where she keeps getting a scab. She isn't messing with it but the scab falls off and leaves a dark place and then forms again. If you mess with it it bleeds. He said she has a mass there and she...

Re: Yucky swollen toe

We took her in today. Vet looked at it and said. It's infected. Duh. He said to soak it it epsom salt n water and keep giving her the meds. We soaked it tonight. I think it might look a little smaller - it started bleeding a little in the water. He will look at it again on Friday when she is sedated...

Re: Yucky swollen toe

Common sense on my part said licking was bad. And I can tell when she has been licking because the lump gets red and raw looking. That wasn't our regular vet - it was the eVet. We're at my sister's house and we used that same eVet when she got bit 2 years ago when we were up here and the vet they ha...

Re: Green Eye Discharge

So glad he is doing better!!!! Those eye drops work fast - just remember to keep using them the entire time the vet said to.

Re: Yucky swollen toe

Thanks y'all! We did look at the blow up ecollars but since it's her front paw I thought she could still reach it ... I could be wrong. I'll look into that! She isn't normally much of a licker - she didn't lick when she got spayed and when she got bit (on the meaty part of her back leg) she never li...
