My 6 yo female black lab got some cuts on either side of her

My 6 yo female black lab got some cuts on either side of her face the other day. It looks like she may have had a run in with a small wild animal in the back yard. She is up to date on shots. I have been treating it by cleaning the areas and putting on antiseptic. I just went to clean and apply, but it appears as if her left side now has an infection and she won't let me do anything to it. My normal vet only offers consultation energency services. Should I seek emergency care now from another vet, or bring her to my vet first thing monday morning?

Can someone please help me, I have two dogs (yes 2) with

Can someone please help me, I have two dogs (yes 2) with diarrhea. My German Shepard (12.5 yrs old)has had it since Monday evening and is being treated by his vet. They have given me 500 mg Metronidazole Tabs. 1 tablet twice daily for 7 days, we are on day 4 and still has the diarrhea. Now my Golden Retriever (6 yrs old) started with it this morning at 12:30am. Her has some substance but the Shepard it total liquid. I have been feeding him boiled ground turkey breast since he started. The Golden has been on her regular food but now I don't know what to do. Is it possible it't the turkey causing this? The Golden has only cleaned up tiny scraps that the Shepard dropped. I wouldn't think that would be enough to cause this. Can one dog get it from another, my Golden licks the Shepard food after he is done. I don't know what do, I have been cleaning up after them throughout the day and now it's time to feed them. I am afraid to feed!!!
