    Default Any idea what this is?

    Y'all I found this today. Finley allowed me to handle his paw but not touch the bump/lump. It is bulbous, no drainage, no odor, and no gait change.
    What do I do? Vet?

    It is an interdigital cysts... Epsom salts soaks. They are caused by allergies. Some say to pop them, but I prefer not to and let the soaks clear it up

    Yup. Cyst. Warm soaks with Epsom salt or disinfect and use sterile needle to poke. Pus will come out. But it is very sore. It’s like pimple.

    Monty doesn't like soaks and it's too much of a battle! I use Vetericyn wound care or Duoxo Mousse. Both work well. At the first sign of one of those cysts, I start using one or the other.

    Yup Indigital Cyst as duke gets them. They are finally gone. Great advice above. He did get one recently n I tried something else I had hanging around which was Bag Balm. Hey it worked. I did pierce it first n apply the BB.

    Thanks to all. Beginning the soak now. Fingers crossed that I can keep him in the tub 10 minutes.

    This may or may not work, just stick that one paw in a bowl while you are cuddling him!

    If I did that with one of my girls, I'd be the one getting soaked!
    It doesn't help that they could care less about being cuddled for more than 15 seconds...that may just be a female bulldog thing.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Louie only cuddles if he's tired.

    I think I have the cuddliest bulldog ever. He demands cuddles, quite vocally, and has as long as he has been with us. No pat on the head will do, it's arms wrapped completely around him and he leans into you. He has calmed down a bit too with his Sundowners I am pleased to say, although he did have a bad evening yesterday. He just couldn't settle and paced and paced until time for bed, then he finally went to sleep. Poor sweet boy.

    An update, The Epsom salt was indeed a struggle. After a few days of not seeing a change I took Finley to the vet, who diagnosed an infection. I figured as much as he had the infection odor. Finley is doing much better, the odor is gone and his isn’t licking his paws as much. BTW, like a few you of you mentioned, Finley can’t stand being cuddled or picked up. He will nestle as close as possible but no laying on me. Lol ��

    2Q - 1) When Finley isn’t at daycare he hardly eats. What’s up with that? We can go for long walks, play, etc but he rarely eats his breakfast and only grazes dinner. It is the same food. I get that he needs to recover from a long day of daycare play, but 2-3 days later shouldn’t he be eating? Is he sad and depressed that my household is quiet?
    2) Finley is in love with Aquaqfor. Sometimes I’ll rub on his paws or my skin. I have to keep the jar out of reach or he will devour it.

    Daycare... my two when they went to daycare would also skip meals because they just wanted to sleep. How old is he again? And what /how much do you feed
