    Question Booties for allergies? Help!

    My bulldog is allergic to grass and oak trees. (Among a lot of other things.) He gets giant cysts that bleed between his paws. So I want to put easy on, easy off booties on him whenever he goes outside. Does anyone have suggestions? The ones I have found either don't fit or are super expensive. He has huge feet.

    I went through this with my Rampage. I used baby neoprene socks for a while and then found a good system of foot bathing that worked each time he would come in. I would add Epsom salt to the water, or vinegar (not acd) and have him soak for a minute when he came in then I would dry his feet well. Benadryl every day also helped me a lot!

    I don’t have any experience with booties but while what you describe could definitely be caused by grass and tree allergies it could also bee food related. What are you currently feeding? One tbing that will help with the interdigital cysts is warm epsom salt soaks a few times a day if you can.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
