I think my dog...

I think my dog have infection!! She hade surgery last week on stitches it’s red blood and puss not much but I can see she’s taking antibiotics too!!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infections your dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?

She’s Molly 10 years old I don’t know what to do we have a bad storm and the vets are closed

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?
