    Default Hello from this Canadian Meatball!

    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to introduce Meatball to the community -- he's a 2.5 year old EB rescue and we live in Toronto, Canada!

    -img_5183-jpg

    I'm looking for any and all tips on how to shape a rescue bully into the best boy he can be--he's already stolen my heart, even when he's doing the exact opposite of what he's supposed to

    Our only concern is that he seems to love literally everyone he meets more than us and that's been disheartening to come home to...and also his poor feet are just a mess of interdigital cysts--if anyone has advice/experience with these things, I'm all ears!

    Thanks in advance for all the wonderful tips I'm sure to receive from this place.

    Cheers!

    Katy

    Welcome to EBN to you and Meatball! He sure is a handsome boy! I am sure that he will love you dearly once he fully settles into his new home. It's actually great that he seems to love everyone he meets--what a great quality! I don't have any experience with interdigital cysts, but I'm sure some other members will have. This is a great place to come with questions!

    Welcome to EBN! Meatballs pic is the best!
    There's so much to learn from this site...there's info on everything including interdigital cysts.
    my guys get them occasionally...soaking their paws in Epsom salts is one of the treatments....I've used a product called Veterycin that's pretty cheap on Amazon and has worked well. Good luck!
    Welcome again and that is an awesome picture!

    Welcome to EBN, Meatball is so handsome!!! Do not worry, he'll come around. Thank you so much for taking him in, and giving him a loving home. For his paws, like Chumley mentioned - some warm epsom salt soaks work well to reduce the inflammation and give him some relief. We do ours in a bowl with warm water, let them soak as long as he'll allow.... then pat dry. I'm sure once those heal up he'll feel much better.

    If he's not a licker, you can use some neosporin. If he is a licker, then go with Vetericyn

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Meatball is a handsome boy! You are a good person to rescue him! Gee, my dad used to call me Meathead!!!! Ahh,, the good ole' days! You have gotten good advice from the gals.
    I believe a food allergy can also be the cause of interdigital cysts.....?

    Food or environmental allergies cause the cysts .... What food brand/protein are you feeding.
