As we came back to the sled dog farm, more of the dogs were unchained. A pack approached, including two of the dogs that had hiked with us. All of a sudden, Emma got bit several times on the face and head. Tim ran over to shoo the pack of dogs away. Our poor baby had a gash just over her eye.
As the night wore on, we could tell Emma was beginning to feel not so well. We found an emergency vet number, which was a cell phone number rotated among the Italian Nationals in the Aviano area. He told us to give him a call in the morning if Emma still wasn't feeling well.
This morning, Emma's cut was a little bit pussy, indicating the beginning of an infection. We took her in where the vet shaved the hair around her eye, cleaned it out, gave her a shot of antibiotics, and sprayed some blue gauze over it so the cut would stay together. Luckily, she didn't need stitches. After the antibiotics and many treats, Emma is already feeling better. Looks like she will be fine.
