My baby is sick

Ruby has been scratching her nose for two days now.  She just had her yearly checkup on Saturday and all was good but I had to take her back because of her obsessive licking and rubbing her face on things.  She kept me awake all last night licking her nose!  Turns out she has a skin infection common to pugs called Pyoderma.  Apparently it doesn't take long for these infections to crop up, which explains why she was fine on Saturday and by today she has a full blown infection.  Thankfully, Dr. North fixed us up with some antibiotics and anti inflammitories and sent us home to rest up.  Ruby is a little drowsy from the pain meds but otherwise she's doing well and looking for some cuddles.  Poor baby!
