I think both my boston terriers were attacked by a raccoon.

Customer Question

I think both my boston terriers were attacked by a raccoon. The attacker went right for their eyes. It has now been two days. Eyes looking back to normal, they are both eating and drinking good. They are both acting normal, but their faces and necks are swollen. What do you think?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the terrier's name?
Customer: Brucie
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Brucie?

Hello, my name is***** and I'm happy to help answer your question about your Boston Terriers. I'm so sorry to hear they were attacked by a raccoon! Before I provide any information, I need to ask a few more questions. Did you witness the attack? Are both dogs current on vaccinations? Also, are they acting sick in any way (decreased appetite or energy, for example)?
