Limpy Sam

sam mugSamantha, Morgan’s American bulldog, has developed an infection around the nail of the little toe of her back left foot that required medical attention.

So I took her to the vet’s office where Dr. Jon Huff determined it’s an infection that probably developed after she ran around on sharp bits of ice and frozen snow in the back yard. He says it’s not uncommon this time of year.

So he put her on an antibiotic (3x/day and I gave her the first dose about 11:30 a.m.) and pain meds (we had a bunch left over from Ruthie’s knee surgery and Dr. Huff said they are what he would have prescribed).

Now it’s Jack’s turn. He goes in for a rabies booster and some other stuff tomorrow morning.

We sure do love our dogs.
