My Scottie dog has been limping on back leg for weeks given xray nothing showed up antibiotics and foot wash its just getting worse feel it is in pain

Angie, I'm sorry to hear of this with Molly. Can you tell me, please, why antibiotics and a foot wash were prescribed for a lame dog? Are there changes in Molly's foot skin that she may have caused by licking at biting at the foot and that prompted her vet to X-ray the foot to see if there are bony changes as well?
