I'm in a quandry on the little one. I need some opinions. I talked to a vet tech and she said definitely bring her in (about the chewed toes). She said they are too young for antibiotics but they might be able to bandage it. I'm not sure she has seen a newborn foot... I don't think you can bandage it and do it such that mom won't take it off. I think she told me to bring her in because she has to out of liability. I think the risk outweighs the benefit! The vet is a dangerous place for a newborn with all the germs, even with the colostrum. I think I should just keep applying peroxide routinely. What do people think on here?
