I had to rush Maggie to the Vet yesterday, her back was swollen and red and the sutures were starting to come out. It was really hot to the touch and her nose was also hot. At the clinic she had her temperature taken and it was not too high but higher than normal. The vet saw her, took her to the back and the technicians were working on her. After a good bit of time, they came out and told me they had to clean the wound, there was a discharge and it was infected, they told me I could stay or go away for a half hour - I stayed. Maggie is doing fine today, but not eating much - she is on antibiotics again and we will have to wait a month or two until we try surgery again. I am so, so, so tired and worried about my little sweetie. They told me that back wounds from dog attacks are the hardest and most difficult to heal, it is very near her left leg where she lost a lot of muscle when she was attacked. Please, for my little Maggie & me, too!
