    Default Interdigital cysts

    Hola peoples....
    2 weeks ago i woke up to jameson having a interdigital cyst...i started treating it and it got smaller...then i missed a day and it blew up...started treating again and it is now small...looks look a large zit honestly...my question is will this cause him to limp a lot? He is favoring that front paw severely?

    hey lady --- how goes it!?

    Yes, they are very painful for them.... epsom salt soaks and you may want to think about the food he is on. Even thought it was good for him all this time, something in him changed

    Vetricyn works really well on cysts.

    Ruthie has one right now too, she's never had one before. I have been using the epsom salt soaks and malecetic wipes. Seems to be doing good. I'll keep up with it until it's gone.

    Maximus has interdigital cysts between all toes on all four paws ----- I have tried soaks, but he does not cooperate and it is impossible to get him to soak his paws in epsom salts, so that is out of the question - I have tried Vetericyn, but that has not worked despite repeated use. The only thing that brings the swelling down on the cysts for Max is antibiotic therapy - currently he is on Cefpodoxime prescribed by his Vet.

    Harlow gets one or two if there is a change in her diet. A change back and they start to clear up fairly quickly. In the meantime I spray Bactine or doggie hydrocortisone on them.

    Hello everyone. I am new here and found this site because I was searching for an issue with my bulldog and inter-digital cyst. She was treated with anti-inflamatories and anti-biotics which resulted in the swelling going down. But just this morning I noticed her toes were swollen again. We had her to vet who suggested surgery, don't like that idea. I would like to put her back on the medications to get it under control but then what? What does one do to continue treatment after the medications are done? Am I missing something here? We have adjusted her food to Nutro Less ingredient, fish and potato at the suggestion of vet. Can anyone relate their experiences with foods for bully brand flavor etc.
