We were walking on the beach tonight and our golden retriever

Customer Question

We were walking on the beach tonight and our golden retriever began to limp. Her front right paw is swollen and she is laying down now. We saw her sniff a washed up Portuguese man-of-war and think she may have been stung. Doesn't seem to be in pain but seems to want to just lay down.

She is following me around the house with a limp and just ate a dog treat. Sides of her eyes seem red.

This has taken too long. Thank you.

Hi, there this is Dr. Scott. Sorry to hear about your unfortunate walk on the beach. I am on the east coast so I was in bed when you posted this. If you still want my advice, just let me know. Otherwise I wish you (and of course Sammy) well.

Hi Gregg,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Sammy. How is everything going?
