Guest Dillymom Posted August 3, 2008 Share Posted August 3, 2008 A week ago today she woke up and had a spot on her leg that she had licked the fur off during the night. I spend 10-15 minutes each night snuggling with each dog and going over them so I know for certain that there was nothing on her leg the night before. And she sleeps in my room with the door closed and there is nothing in my room that she could get into. So Sunday I noticed this spot on her leg and I cleaned it and put antibiotic ointment on it and wrapped it up. I kept her from licking by putting a long sleeve tshirt on her. As the week wore on the spot was showing no sign of improvement so I called the adoption agency. They had me take her to a vet they use yesterday. The vet couldn't figure out what's causing her to lick and put her on an antihystimine and a topical steriod. She told me to continue keeping it wrapped, clean and dry as I have been doing. So this morning I went to change her bandage and it's worse than before. First off the smell is awful- it smells like something rotting and secondly the top layer of skin is coming off and there is a vein that is now exposed. I'm putting some pics in here- I can't get them any clearer b/c my camera sucks. Sorry Any ideas of what this is? Or what else I can do? I feel so bad for this dog.
