Its the punctures that worry me.
Thankfully I had some alcohol pads in my purse, so I used four of them
to clean it off, thoroughly.
I know to watch for swelling or warmth ofthe area... But I don't want to take her in to a doc if it's not necessary.
I know they'll throw antibiotics at her, even withoutsign of an infection, not to mention the insistence of a tetnus shot.
Any advice or tips? Anything else I should watch out for?
It's been about 4 hours & all is well. She's bathed & it's scanned over at the scratch/puncture marks. I'm just curious about delayed signs/symptoms I may not know or think about.
Anyone else have this happen? Am I freaking out for nothing?
