Mom had to take me back to the dogtor, she said my nail is growing weird and doesn't seem to be healing. The dogtor is worried that I might have an infection under it, probably cause I won't stop licking it and ripping off the bandage mom puts on my foot - doesn't she know how annoying foot bandages are though? Anyways, now I have to take pills with each meal (antibiotics) to see if the nail will get better. So far mom says she can't tell the difference. I don't mind the pills though, mom usually hides them in cream cheese. I know they are there but don't tell her that! Sometimes she doesn't hide them well enough and I spit them out, this is my strategy to get a second round of cream cheese! I'm a smart girl!
As for Dante's pad? It healed up really nice mom and dad did a good job and he doesn't mind the foot wrapping. I tried telling him that he could chew it off but he just grumbled at me and left it on.
Dz Dog Mom Here!
If Ziva would leave the bandages alone I bet her nail would heal quicker, we have about 1 more week on the antibiotics with her. I can't tell if it's getting better or not, but at least it isn't getting any worse. If this doesn't work the vet wants to check for a fungal/bacterial infection under the nail and maybe do a biopsy, but I think she'd benefit just having the nail removed and letting it start over fresh. OUCH!
Anyways, wish us luck! Looks like we also need to readdress Dante's nose issue. I'll have an update on that later.
In case you missed it!:
