We had a scare with Maggie. She had an infected pad on her rear foot. Took her to the vet and started antibiotics and a topical cream. The infection cleared up. The vet said that there were two puncture spots and thought that it was a spider bite. She has been cleared and fur is growing back. Thank goodness. She is back to her daily routine which is a small walk and chasing the neighbors dog back and forth along the fence.
Oh WHEW! Spider bites can be scary. I'm so glad it's clearing up! Sounds like life is great for her, it's the kind of good stuff we always hope will happen after a dog loses a leg. Don't forget to post photos, we'd love a Maggie fix!

Geez Maggie! We don't need our Tripawds giving us scares like that! And then, an infected spider bite is the culprit of the "scare".??? Very weird.
Just glad sweet Maggie is back to fence running!😀 Keep on keeping on Maggie girl!!
