OK thank you
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Friend, I am sorry to learn that Chloe is hurt. In response to your question, it sounds like she is in pain. I would definitely have her examined by a veterinarian as soon as you can. In the meantime, this is what you can do:

1- Do not let her lick the wounds or she is going to delay healing and promote an infection. Pick up an E collar (cone) in your local pet store to stop her from licking/gnawing the affected area.

2- Pick up in your local pharmacy "Hibiclens" antimicrobial soap or chlorhexiderm scrub. Dilute 1-2 tablespoon for every cup of water. Use this mixture to flush the wound 2-3 times a day.

3- After flushing affected area as above apply a topical antibiotic like neosporin or bacitracin. Do this 2-3 times a day for the next 7-10 days.

4- Follow up with your family veterinarian.

NOTE: Do not give over the counter pain medication there is nothing that would be safe for your puppy. Once she is seen by a veterinarian they will start her on pain medication. If possible, I would have her checked tonight by ER veterinarian.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.

Does it sound to you like she may have been hit by car or more like she got caught up in something like barb wire (we live out in the country around all farms) also Chloe is a very tiny puppy, that’s why I would think if hit she would be worse or dead. Trying to ease my mind sorry for all the questions
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Both scenarios are possible and for this reason, it is important that she is examined by a veterinarian. Once the vet examines her they can have a better understanding of what happened. Without a hands-on examination, I am not able to tell you exactly what could of happen, I am sorry.
