Fingers crossed that it's something that can be cleared up quickly. Do you have any idea what he grazed it on? I guess I'd feel reassured that there are signs of injury, rather than something internal acting up on its own. Sending good thoughts!

no idea how he did it,could be something to do with the graze which looks insignificant. :unsure

Glad Pepper saw the vet, and you are on the right track getting the infection under control! :-)) Hope Pepper heals soon.

Poor bug. Hope the meds do the trick and he is back to himself soon.

Looking at this photo, it ALMOST looks like bleeding under the skin. Do you think Pepper could have hit the inside of the leg? That would account for the sweling and the lameness.

 

Hope Pepper heals soon!

It DOES look like he could have hit that leg, and you are looking at bleeding under the skin, and not an infection. And, my disclaimer ... I am not a vet, but to me, it does looks like the bleeding. Glad Pep isn't lame, and hope he feels better VERY soon!
