    Bath the area in cool water and pat dry if you don't have any dog suitable creams like paw paw ointment, if it persists and you are worried make an appointment at a reasonable hour tomorrow.

    At the moment the vet is dealing with car accidents, puppy stuck in birth canal etc.
    I think she meant wake her parents for advice.

    But yeah not emergency stuff.

    Same rules apply Chi4eva for parents as the vet.

    Aren't you the one that said you didn't own / had never owned a dog.

    Chicken Little? Much?

    CF This was your first reaction. Now you are back tracking because you're suddenly realising that you are wrong.

    Well said Hy!

    Demi, how is she going?

    No we've never owned a dog. I was just offering what I would do if I'd had a fright with my dogs health that wasn't emergency but I was scared.

    Well, learnt something new about dog health.

    That's what you said. You didn't add your expert veterinary qualifications for this diagnosis.

    If I'm guessing in a post - I say so. If I got the info from somewhere else - I say so. If it's something from personal experience - I try to describe so the poor freaked out person can see if my experience applies in her situation or not.

    Demi might have read enough of your posts to know you don't know what you're talking about - but she's freaking out - brain disengaged.

    Chi, may I make a suggestion? Having never owned a dog I really don't think you should be offering opinions on health related issues, fine if you want to ASK questions, but not to ANSWER them.

    Which is why I don't answer questions about raising puppies, I've never been through that experience. I will only answer questions when I have had a similar experience.

    Otherwise you can unintentionally cause someone to panic, Demi seems to have logged off, I hope she comes back on to read the rest of the replies and hasn't gone off in a panic trying to convince her parents a trip to the emergency vets is needed.

    Good advice. I'll do that from now on, it was silly to upset someone who was already distressed with no knowledge advice.

    Well I apologized, and I sincerely hope Demi saw what you guys said.

    Anyway, I hope everything works out for Demi and little Mollie. xx

    I was trying to work out a nice way of saying exactly this! Thank you for doing it for me

    Unfortunately my normal bluntness would have been incredibly offensive and upsetting, so I was simmering and keeping my trap shut
