last night our 3yr old 15lb terrier mix got out and was gone for a few hours when he showed up i could tell he had been in a fight, some bleeding on the left upper portion of the leg other than that covered in what looked like slobber hair all nappy and limping, i bathed him and could not tell where the wound was, he was really soar and wore out. my question is scents he appears to be okay should i still take him to see a vet or wait to see how he is doing tomorrow. this is his first time in a dog fight and may have gotten off easy.
Well if there was bleeding, did you find the source? I suggest you lay him down and give him a thorough going over. A good way to do this is get a fine-toothed comb and slowly drag it "against" the lay of the coat so you can see Diwn to the skin. Pay particular attention to that area you saw the bleeding, may be from or the dog or cat he got into a scuffle with. If there are scratches or even one puncture wound, I suggest you make a Vet apot as those can cause serious infections.
