    Hello, my almost 2 year old Peking Fred was attacked by a raccoon on Thursday. We brought him in the house immediately and put him in the tub, I cleaned his open wound with iodine and we put him into a Rubbermaid in our wet bar. He ate and drank on Friday morning and today I notice his neck and chest is swollen. Any suggestions on what I can do next, my daughter was devastated by the loss of "different eye" in the same attack. I don't want her to lose Fred as well. Thanks in advance for any help.
