My shitzhu got in a fight with another shitzhu while I was

Customer Question

my shitzhu got in a fight with another shitzhu while I was gone. She yelped and when looking at her one of her teeth are sticking through gum and is bleeding, dog is shaking. I have antibiotics but wonder is I can wait till in the morning instead of going to emergency which is some mileage away from me.

Hi, I can help you with your question today. The most important information we can find is if she has more serious wounds elsewhere. Since it was a fight with a Shih Tzu, it is unlikely that there are any severe crushing wounds or lacerations. Are you certain that the wound in her mouth is the only one?
