Our expert says:
At this stage I think it may be advisable to get your vet to revisit and inspect the leg as the swelling in the limb should have dissipated by now.
Given the nature of dog bites I suspect that this might be a mild case of cellulites (skin infection) / lymphangitis (infection of the lymph vessels). If this is the case then I would probably prescribe an additional coarse of broad spectrum antibiotics and anti-inflammatory’s.
You should also consider massaging the limb, cold hosing, bandage with poultice and restricted exercise.
