I think that my pup has an infected dew claw. Well, not the claw itself, but the area around it. It is sightly red and swollen, and a little sensitve to my touching where the nail attaches at the bottom, no drainage. I noticed it last night, and peroxided it, and antibacterial ointment, and again this morning. It still looks the same tonight, no better, no worse. I am going to try to soak it tonight in some warm salt water, I am not sure she will go for that though. If it gets any worse, or does not improve in the next day or 2, I will take her to the vet. Just thought I would see if anyone knew of anything else I could do to help her out.
