Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I took her to the vet and they cut the nail down, wrapped it, and put her on an antibiotic. That was on Monday. Since then, she has been really calm, laid back, and has slept all day. She wants to be under the covers for the first time since I got her and she's just not herself. Is this a possible result of the antibiotic- Cefelxin (allergy? etc.) or is this normal because she's hurting? I didn't get pain meds for her because it wasn't recommended by the vet. Any ideas or even what I should keep looking for would be appreciated!!
Thank you! Just one other thing- she is perkier tonight so I'm definately not as worried as I was last night. However, she is not using that foot at all. She is using 3 legs to walk around. Could this be because it's annoying or should I get her back in sooner than planned?
Sorry for all of the questions but I really appreciate your help.
