Just when Chloe is starting to perk up..it is the other dog who is 8 months old. husband takes the dogs to the field/pond everyday after work. Kenzie swims, Chloe just walks in the water(she things she swims..LOL) After they got home the two dogs were playing ball (rare for chloe). I notice blood all over the rug. Walk in the kitchen and puddles of blood. So, I immediately grab Chloe since she is our problem dog. No cuts. Turn Kenzie over and above her pads right by the upper claw is about a two inch gash. Sliced open like a V. Through the meat, but no bone showing. So much blood it looked like something was in there. difficult child thought a leach. Carried her over to a neighbors. Her husband held the flashlight and the paw. I held the dog, and friend put big bandage with neosporin on it, then wrapped in gauze, then tape. Put a winter doggie boot over it. Now she doesn't walk!!! no ER vet open in our town. husband took her to the vet this morning. Waiting for an update from him. If it's not one thing it's another. No..its everything.
