Default Back from the vet...

Lily has a bacterial infection..there is no lump, the skin is thickened there..the vet put her on Clindamycin(antibiotic) twice a day and Muricin cream to put on the sore..but we have no idea how she got it..I'm glad I took her in..hopefully it will clear up with the meds..thank you all for your support..

That's so weird. Wonder where or how she got it. Did he take a sample to check that it was bacterial? Hoping the meds work.

If she had any open skin in that area - from playing with her siblings or scratching her face...normal doggy stuff ..... and then the bacteria got into the tiny opening - that could easily create a bacterial sore.

I'm glad you took her in and got some stuff to help treat it Hope it clears up quick.

Oh man...I hope it's nothing like the celllulitis that I had. That was awful! And painful! Poor baby. Give her some very very gentle kisses for me.

It is weird..yes, he did get a sample but he said that there was not as much bacteria as he was expecting..whatever that means..I have washed it at home and put antibiotic cream on it..maybe that's why?

That's what the vet was thinking...I do know that Lily and Eva play together frequently..

Thank you, me too..the oozing and bleeding concerned me.

I don't think it is cellulitis..that's a lot worse..she has not run a fever and feels just fine..thank you for your support, Crystal

It is strong..maybe because it is close to her mouth? Thank you, Carole..

Please know though ... that you and Lily have been in my prayers and that it is nothing serious. I will check in later this evening to see how the vet appointment went today.

Love and hugs for both of you.
You are sweet, Marie..you do not need to apologize for a thing..I know that you have had a lot on your plate lately..but thank you for thinking of us...
