    DefaultSwollen Paw

    Hello - I'm not sure what my lab did to her foot but it is not pretty. See the 2 pictures I attached. Has anyone ever had this happen to their dog before? I am taking her to the vet at 1:30 today but just thought I would see if anyone had any suggestions. We've been to the park a few times but I can't think of anytime that she yelped or acted like she hurt her paw.
    Very strange.

    Holy moly!! Did you see a vet since you posted this? Has it gone down at all? She probably got bit by...something. DOn't know what, spider maybe?
    Yikes, poor girl.

    DefaultThank you!

    Sorry I didn't respond yesterday. My computer at home was acting up. I took Mudd to the vet and they kept her for 2-1/2 hours and gave her a tiny sedative so they could get a good look at her paw. The vet said they couldn't find anything that caused the infection. They flushed and flushed a ton of blood, blood clots and puss from her foot. She did have a hole that went clear through the skin between her toes. Dr. Meyer thought she could have had a thorn in it at some point that caused the infection. I attached a couple pics. She is on 14 days of anitbiotics too. poor girl.

    Thanks for your well wishes.
