Help! My dog is sick?
ok so i have a dog she is about 70 pounds... i really dont know what race she is but she is brown n markedly furry. My new pitbull bit her on her leg and i noticed yesterday it was pretty discouraging it still bleeds once in a while and oozes pus ive been cleaning it near peroxide and neosporine ive wrapped it but she keeps taking it ioff she keeps geting worse though i also gave her aspirine. The article is i dont have money or not alot and i need to find a low cost or free vet were can i shift?
you could go to any vet and see if you could get a
cone item for your dog,
that would be low cost
DO NOT give her any more aspirine or anything else but food - she wants antibiotics from the vet - now.
She really needs a home that can afford to steal care of her - but speak to the vet first about getting her well, and after ask for help finding her a new place. I hate to see her using up any money that you inevitability for groceries.
Please take her to the vet in the morning- Here are some places to ask for grants to abet get her better:

American Animal Hospital Association www.aahahelpingpets.org/home The heartbreak happens adjectives too often. A pet owner is unable to afford treatment and their sick or injured companion animal pays the price. If the owner is elderly, disabled or on a fixed income, the cost of care may be too much of a stretch for their pocketbook. Perhaps they enjoy been victimized by crime, property loss or a job layoff and are experiencing a temporary financial hard times making it too difficult to afford pet care. And some animals, brought to clinics by Good Samaritans, don't have an owner to pay for treatment. Whatever the situation, the certainty remains the same: When sick or injured animals are unable to receive veterinary keeping, they suffer. Through the AAHA Helping Pets Fund, veterinary care is possible for sick or injured pets even if they have be abandoned or if their owner is experiencing financial hardship."

but make sure you also let the bite nouns out and to do that you can put the peroxide and neosporin on it and so that the dog doesnt constantly lick it put the vicks about 1 inch AWAY from the cut. You can call a local vet and explain your situation, some vets will be feeling like to cut their prices for some situations or they could reccomend cheaper places.
your dog developed abscess
check website for Dog Abscess and the treatment.
The dog absolutely cannot lick the pus or the wound!
will have minor infection if do.
my dog had abscess after puncture wound and the doc squeezed out hell lot of puss and blood. It takes 3 weeks + to restore to health
You definitelly need to go vet!
please bring her there. the Abscess treatment is extremely cheap because it is basic.
It need antibiotics and proper sterilizing liquid.
or it might become tooooo serious until your dog's leg is surrounded by question.
Your dog needs to see a vet.
Stop playing doctor.
By the way...aspirin act as an anticoagulant.
Contact the Human Society in your area for location of a low cost vet. It means within is a serious infection if there is pus oosing from the wound. Also, dogs do not come ins "races", there are breeds of dogs. I would also take rid of the pit bull.
Well you have to dance to the vet even if you can't afford it its either that or the dog gets really sick
If you don't have any money, how can you afford proper dog care, approaching vet bills? I highly doubt there is a free vet anywhere, unless it's somebody who says they're a vet. You entail to take your dog to a vet.the bite wound isn't going to get better on it's own. It needs a vet, approaching yesterday. If you don't have any money, you shouldn't have dogs. You need to enjoy at least some money to take care of any dog. They call for need a good diet, and you need to pinch them to the vets for a check up at least every year.or if they gain injured.
