Hello, my trusty pup...

Hello, my trusty pup is favoring hind leg. Extremely cold here past 48 hrs. Concerning due to no visible laceration of paw pad..but entire foot is much warmer (“angry hot”..infection type heat) ....I have both Bactrian and Minocycline...

No bleeding, slight inflammation..and much warmer than the rest of her.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. If the foot swollen, or just hot? Will she walk on it?
