It's a new week and we have a new foot problem. This time it's Lola's foot. On Sunday Fudge alerted me to a problem with Lola's foot. Why do these things always happen on weekends or holidays? On close inspection, one of Lola's toes was red and swollen. I had learned from Samba's experience and immediately got out the cone of shame again. It was still warm from the last use.
Have you ever taken a good look at a dog's toes? They're usually long and slim. One of Lola's toes was bright red and about an inch and a half wide and almost an inch think. Dr B was quite impressed with the amount of swelling. I won't gross you out with a photo. Take my word, it's ugly.
This morning her toe was about the same size and still red, but one small area was more swollen than the rest. It's the part where we thought the bite might be located. Keep your fingers crossed that the hot soaks make it open and drain soon. Poor Lola is really hating her new bonnet and I'm not thrilled about doing this routine again so soon. We want to get back to this.
