Lucy went to the vet today, and the diagnosis is a possible septic infection in the joint of her left foot. Perhaps this is secondary to a small puncture, but there is currently no open wound. She’s been prescribed both pain medication and antibiotics:
Metcam: 0.5 to 1ml 2x/day for five days. Then once daily until foot is less swollen
Clavamox: One 250mg (chewable tablet) 3x/day for five days. Then refill prescription after re-assessing
We’ll start both tonight.
In other news, Lucy was a champ when it came to going to the vet. Cool, calm and collected, as well as curious! Not a single panicy moment.
