Malik has an injury on his paw that happened sometime on Sunday night or early Monday morning. We didn’t see anything on the surveillance camera to indicate a scuffle between Shadow and Malik, but we have observed Malik sleeping in a small underground den daily during these heat advisory days. The injury looks like a tear, and it is likely that he got his toe caught coming out of the underground den. We are treating with antibiotics and are giving an anti-inflammatory daily. He showed dramatic improvement by Wednesday. He continues to lick it which keeps it clean, but makes it harder to heal.
