Hi! My boyfriend needs help w/ her dog’s condition.
4 days ago, there were wounds in Jackie’s (dog’s name) tail that seems like blisters from a burn that popped, reddish and watery. He started to clean it using betadine.
But then, eventually her skin has blackened that looks like it’s been burned and it’s spreading. It also looks and smells like it’s rotting. Her gums have gone white, weak limbs unable to stand, can’t eat/drink, and is having fever. She’s been crying a lot and gets weaker and weaker.

We want to know what could be her disease and any help to cure it. We’d really appreciate it if we can get an immediate answer. Thanks!

Hello,

From what you are describing, your dog needs a vet! Pale gums and worsening wound , smell, etc require vet care . Please take your dog to get help. 

Good luck!-Kelly

The only and best answer is to get the dog to a vet ASAP. White gums set of red flags in my mind, and most likely mean anemia, whether it be from something autoimmune or some kind of blood loss. Please get Jackie to a vet and fast. We cannot offer a diagnosis without doing an exam (and it would be unethical of those of us that are veterinary professionals to do so).
