Red bump in between toes?

Postby Youaremysuicide » Thu Sep 13, 2012 8:34 pm

I gave Hiro a bath tonight, and noticed this huge boil-like bump in between her toes. It has been maybe two days since I checked her feet last. I don't get paid until next Friday, and I'm kinda recovering from not working the entire summer. (I work at the local university) So is there anything I could possibly do to make it better or to make it stop bothering her until then?

It may be an interdigital cyst. Soak w/warm compresses. The rest of the time, make sure your pup's feet stay dry. It can be moisture and/or allergy related.
But keep an eye on it, because it might be something more significant.

Lady Bug gets these here and there through the year. I usually put a cone on her for 3 days so she can't lick it, the soak and compress works wonders! After 3 days, its usually gone.

Thanks guys!
How long should I soak it and how often? And how often should I apply compresses?

I needed to soak my dog about 3x a day, for about 10 minutes each time, for a few days. It's been quite a while, so my recall may be off.

For Lady it depends on how bad they are. I usually do twice I day with it as small as the one you posted. 3 times wouldn't hurt tho.

Could be the entrance point of a foxtail? If it gets bigger or you notice swelling elsewhere on that leg I would def have a vet check it out!

I have been soaking it like the others suggested and it's pretty much completely gone! So, thanks for all the help!
