Customer Question
Earlier today, we suddenly...

Earlier today, we suddenly noticed a raised, bleeding raw spot on our dog's nose (in the furry part, not the nose itself). We took her to a vet who looked at some pus under the microscope and didn't see any bacteria or parasites. They gave us some antibiotics, but even after one dose, 5 hours later, the swelling/bleeding looks worse, and she seems listless.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

She's a two She's under two years old. We live in Brooklyn, NY in a neighborhood with grassy lawns. We're wondering if its a bite of some kind.
