I had to leave my bluetick coonhound at the vet this morning. She has a hot spot that just got disgusting over the weekend and is just oozing. I cleaned it up several times but she got to looking real bad last night. I tried to bathe her but the base of her tail was so sensitive she cried when the water ran over it. She's got a fever so high that the vet said it might be something more than an infection. We agreed on a course of treatment but she still said that if it is something worse and she passes there wouldn't have been any more they could do than what they are doing. Ok so I'm worried and just waiting till this evening when I can call and check on her. Today sucks.
