Just thought I'd update...I'll be taking Lexus to the vet next week to have them look at it. It bleeds almost everytime she has to go out in the snow to potty, and it appears to be getting bigger. I think it's a cyst. She has definitely been licking the paw more, so I think it's bothering her.

Any ideas on what this may be?

We just came in from a romp in the snow, and Lexus' foot was bleeding all over the place. I look at it, and behind one of her toes on the inside of her foot is a bump, almost looks like an unpopped blister, and that was the source of her bleeding. I cleaned it up with antibacterial soap and hydrogen...

My dogs chew on bones frequently, they get Apple Cider Vinegar in their food almost daily which keeps their mouth pretty clean, and I brush their teeth once or twice a month.

I fed the Wetlands formula for a while and all three of my dogs did great on it (the only food that all three have done well on)...cost was a big factor so I had to switch to Diamond Naturals Extreme Athlete but Lexus isn't doing well on it, so we're going back to TOTW after this bag.

I got my male Duke neutered at 1 year. I think it's better to fix males before they start having issues like marking, humping, etc. because they will be less likely to start those behaviors if they are already neutered.

I wouldn't worry too much unless she starts to become skinny. She may just be on the smaller end of the breed standard.

My dogs just get a capsule a day. They eat them like treats. I just bought a big bottle from Wal-Mart.

We always just used the canned stuff, much less messy and it doesn't go bad.

The brand name was Tripett.

I was living in Japan when they had it so the vet treatment is a little different there. They got oral doses of Ivermectin twice a day. Shelby showed sensitivity to it though, so we stopped it. Usually the smaller spots will clear up on their own as the pup's immune system matures. Your pup will pro...

It looks like Demodex mange, and if he's scratching there's likely a secondary skin infection going on.

Demodex is common in puppies. Two of my three had it when they were
little.

Lexus is back to normal. I'm pretty sure the pantyhose she pooped out was the root of the problem.

I don't understand why she would think pantyhose are tasty. She just gobbled it down, it was all in one long peice when it came out. :yucky:

I took Lexus to the vet a while ago for this...all they did was recommend soaking her feet in warm water with epsom salt twice a day.
