    Default Wart?

    Anyone has had a case with a cyst like bump between a bully's back paw. At first glance the vet said it's a wart but it's kinda red and a bite smaller than a dime now. She does lick it from time to time. Can it be a cyst or a wart?

    It is probably an interdigital cysts, you can soak it in Epson salt or put Preparation H on it to reduce the swelling, my Lucy Lu gets them some times. Your vet should have known this.

    I agree with @Davidh. Most likely it is a cyst. You should start treating her know before it gets bad. Also agree that the vet should have known what this was.

    I do agree that it sounds like an interdigital cyst. Maggie got them at the same time we discovered she was allergic to chicken .. she was on chicken n veg at the time. Unfortunately Maggie licked hers so much that they became infected and so she had to go to the vets with them!!

    I agree with everyone else about it sounding like an interdigital cyst. My Wilson on one paw had those cysts between his toes and overnight they swelled up and made his paw look double wide. Didn't know what they were until we got to the vets and she said they are very common in English Bulldogs. He got some antibiotics and a spray and again overnight they shrunk down. Did some research after that and there are so many theories as to why. Some claim ingrown hairs while others think a minor injury allows bacteria to enter and cause infection. All I know is I am consistently washing his feet in either water with Epsom salts, cider vinegar or Mal-a-Ket medicated shampoo. This last week he has been hit hard with red yeast on his feet despite my washing and will probably need an allergy shot and maybe some meds to control the yeast.

    Isnt it amazing that we all know what this is but a Vet didnt???? Epsom salt soaks for a few days will will do the trick. Unfortunately, once they occur they will reoccur.

    @NikkiSchoolcraft...when do you use the Epsom salt? Right when you see one popping up? What if it's already ruptured can you still soak their paw. Seems like it would hurt. He has one right now. Just trying to find the poor guy relief because he just sits there and licks constantly. Thanks!

    I soak them as soon as I see it appear. You can still soak it when its large or has ruptured. I just put them in the tub and and soak their feet while Im doing their daily ears and wrinkle cleaning...about 10 mins. Be sure to dry her feet well.
