...by something out back while going potty. The only thing I saw around was an ant hill. She's been licking at her paw and favoring it for the last hour now. I gave her a benedryl but it doesn't seem to have kicked in. Mike and I both double checked the area where she was...no snakes, no spiders (that were visible at least), but there were ant hills. Jersey just seems to really be suffering. What else can I do? Could an ant bite really be this bad? It looks like the pad on her paw is really red. Whenever I touch it she pulls away. Why do these things always happen to at 5 p.m. on a Friday night? My vet is open until noon on Saturday. If she's not better by morning, I'll have Mike take her in. Hopefully we won't end up in the Animal ER tonight.
