    @cowsmom thanks for the recommendation, I guess we will need to wait until 1 year! At least she's better today.

    Just keep up the soaking and ointment and it will go away. I've stopped cysts in their tracks on Wilson and BabyGirl but I wash paws with Hibiclens and then spray with an antiseptic spray I got from the vet. They don't get them very often but I always know when one is starting to develop when I catch them licking their paws.

    Its called Deep Pyoderma (interdigtal cysts) can be caused by allergies among other things, it turns into a bacterial infection which I delt with in my Gunnyboy, I did the soaks, prep h, salves and many antibotics and the only thing that took them away was Clindimycin, a antibiotic that is easy on their stomachs and little adverse affects to the dog. I fought these things and are hard to conqure.

    Most likely, it's the allergy. It's a chronic condition for our dogs, so you will see more of that in future. You'll learn to deal with it more easily and efficiently as the time go on. I know I did. I've been dealing with Dukey's allergies for a year now, interdigital cysts are least of my worries. Dukey is allergic to grass dust and chicken. Not much I can help out in his surroundings and environment. So we put him on a medication when his allergies worsens. Some goes with little dose of steroid, and I'm going with cyclosporine. It is working for the best for Dukey as up now with his allergy issues.

    Spunky will be fine =] I'm sure he's in good hands.

    Spunky is feeling fine as far as we can tell. I called the vet other day and she said to keep giving her Benedryl for now, until we can take her in. They said they would probably give her a cortisone shot, does anyone have any over the counter ideas for now? She's still licking poor baby

    We have soaked in epsinsalt and applied preparationH for a couple days now, also give her a Benedryl.

    I wish... Miila is a mess and we got her a cortisone shot a few weeks back, seemed to help but not for long. She is on a prescription of some sort that also if of no use to her really. Her feet are driving her crazy right now. Feel awful for her... Going to think about getting allergy testing done for her cuz she has never not had some kind of symptom since getting her, now tho seasonally it is worse.

    I Hope so too. It is definitely worth a try. Was going to change foods in our search to help her but once the seasons started changing she got worse.
