Hi,

I am not sure if this is the right place to put this or not but I need an answer. Our dog, Lily has a scab and it has green around it I just realized this today. Is this a sign of infection or what? Lily got her scab from being bitten by a dog that I had owned and this happened about two weeks ago on September 1st. She has been acting different the last couple of days.

Have you taken her to vet to check for infection?

No, because my dad didn't think it was necessary to, while everyone else was saying that she should go to the vet.

Dog bites can get infected pretty easily. A vet visit is probably needed, but based on your answer it sounds like it’s your parent’s dog?

Yes it is my parents dog, it's my Moms. She couldn't take her to the vet though because she was having problems with her wrist she is really worried though.

Are you old enough to drive? Or do you have a family friend who could help? Try talking to your parents.

Maybe take a picture and see if you can find a vet willing to do a phone consult?

I am not old enough to drive, we have neighbors that might be able to help I have sisters that are old enough but they don't have licenses and my parents will be leaving to go to MO tomorrow. Taking a picture wouldn't work as Lily doesn't want to be messed with.

You’re going to need help I’m thinking. I hope things work out.
