    DefaultBuddy-Photo of Leg-Is this normal?

    I'm worried about his leg. It's a lot more red than it was yesterday. I don't think the first one looked like this or I would have record of asking this back then. I tried to take a picture but I can't spread the leg far enough to get to the underside. The part where my fingertips are is the worst. More of an area and more red than the part you can see. What do you think? He's on antibiotics. Does this look infected or am I just overreacting?

    To me it looks like it is a bruise, but don't take my word on it. Sure hope he get to feeling better soon.

    It looks like bruising. It may get even worse looking before it gets better. Continued good thoughts for Buddy's recovery.

    thanks - I knew I could count on you!!!! Last night it was smaller and seemed like more of a circle so I thought that meant infection.

    Oh! Poor Buddy. and poor Mom. That looks so sore. I feel like I want to get down on the floor and hug Buddy. I am sure that Hershey Kisses would like to share some kisses and help that leg feel better.

    Did the vet say anything about cold compresses for the swelling? I did that twice a day with Darby.

    Thats what I was thinking too. If the redness had been on the incision I would worry.
