My dog was bitten by another dog and is swelling a bit. Her shoulder is already stiff, I'm not sure what to do to try to help it... Any suggestions would be helpful!

If the dog's bite is significant enough, and if she's not on any medication or other drugs, you can do nothing. Her shoulder is going to stiffen up with time and that's just the way it's going to be. If she's not on medication or other drugs, there's really nothing you can do for her. She'll be fine.

I've always thought this. If a dog is on pain meds and a bite is significant, I think you should take her to the vet ASAP to make sure the injury isn't worse and to let them do a few Xrays. If the injury is significant (say you know it was the shoulder or elbow that was bit), you probably should go to the vet asap too (to let them do more tests and maybe do some other stuff to help).

You would take her to the vet for xrays? If it is significant, why wouldn't you take her to the vet for xrays? And no pain medication or other drugs?

I was wondering about this. If your dog was not on pain medication or other drugs, why would you take her to the vet to see if her injury is worse, especially since her injury is already significant?

She was not on medication and it was the first day of the summer holidays for the dog, so she was pretty much running free and she was a little hyper, so that may have aggravated it.

I would not take her to the vet to see if her injury is worse. I'd take her to the vet to make sure she was healthy, have a blood test done and an exam. They would also do some X-rays. If the injury was significant, I would have her come home. I would not take her to the vet if the injury was not significant. If it was significant, I would take her to the vet. If the injury was not significant, I would just give her a painkiller and homeopathic remedy and take her home.

I'm sorry, but that sounds very uneducated. To me, that's like asking if the guy with the black eye looks bad or not, because he's black.

It sounds more like she needs x-rays to make sure the injury is not worse, and to get her some pain meds and an antibiotic if needed. And I would have her get examined at a vet's office if it was severe.

That is probably true, if she has a bite mark on the shoulder. That's really going to stiffen it up. A vet is the way to go, not me...

I wasn't suggesting you. I just want to help out.

Well, no, that's not going to make it better, that's going to make it worse. If it
