Resident Man Of Many Hats
So our Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher (yes dont laugh) got into World War 3 in our living room on Saturday over a squeeky toy. The Chihuahua somehow got the Miniature Pinscher by the face and put a few bites on her lip. Other than a few battle scars the Chihuahua is fine but the Miniature Pinscher took a beating. She has a few little marks under her chin and on the side of her face but they are nothing major, bled for a bit but now they are healed up and fine. Her lip however is not doing to good. She has one or two puncture wounds on her upper lip, even looks like there is a cut inside. Her lip has been swollen since Saturday and it feels really hard to the touch. Is it just swollen from the wound or do you guys think she needs to see a vet? It hasnt gotten worse and there is no discharge or anything, the bite marks are very small so it's not mangled either. On the other hand it hasnt gotten any better either. We're trying to avoid forking out cash to the vet just to tell us it's normal. They havent really beat each other that bad before so we really do not know what to expect from two 8 lb dogs getting into a UFC match. Any thoughts?
