I have an outside dog named Roscoe. He is a boxer/pitbull mix. Yesterday we noticed one side of his face was swollen (about the size of a grapefruit). He was in pain, so I gave him an aspirin (safe for dog consumption). Last night, I checked in again, and noticed it was now an open wound and the wound was oozy. He was drooling out of that side of his mouth, I guess because of the swelling. His tail was wagging and he wasn't acting weird. That being said, we are country folk. We care for our dogs, get them shots, etc. but we also realize that they are animals and veterinarians are ridiculously expensive (and in my experience kind of snobby). Before anyone says I am irresponsible for not taking him to the vet or feeding him organic feed LOL understand that he showed up as a stray and was not purchased, so we are not being bad pet owners. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Maybe a snake or spider bite? Do you know of anything that we can do to help him recover? I really don't think it is life threatening because a dog's tail tells a lot and he is very happy and in good spirits (he even chased the van this morning). Any help is appreciated!
