    We couldn't see any open sore's and nothing cyst like but he's very red between his middle toe he's been chewing/licking his paw a lot too, is it just normal Epsom bath salts she should use? And how long does she soak his feet for?

    Sounds like allergies or yeast between his toes. You can try the Epsom salt if you like, it won't hurt anything and may even help.

    epsom salt soak (as long as bully will tolerate! and then dry completely. Duoxo as much as twice a day (though we never do more than once a day because it is very effective). Things should clear up soon! given that the 'allergen' has been eliminated. Either one as often as you like will help

    Exmarid Ointment 100g - 3.59 this stuff is really good for between little bullys toes and it is great for inter digital cysts and its antifungal only problem is that it smells like charcoal and little dog will too but its awesome and easy to apply and little dogs dont seem to mind getting it put on

    Thanks @benny316 Haha I'm sure she won't mind the charcoal smell if it helps the little guy out @aprilemari I'm might be having s thick moment here but the Epsom salts you use are they actual bath salts or the ones that you can grab from the chemist in a white tub?

    @rubymummy By chemist do you mean at the pharmacy? They are multi-use epsom salts, white crystals, you can buy at the grocery store in the medicine aisle, or the pharmacy on the shelves near first aid. We use them to soak in, but also in the garden. They're aren't scented or anything.

    @rubymummy you can use the douxo pads, it might help. Then try to figure out what is causing the allergy, it could be environmental or food. If the food has grains in it or chicken I would try a different food.
