    Default What could this be on Spunky's feet?




    Spunky has a reddish raw spot on one of her front paws, she also has a kind o red rear paw. I'm thinking she may have got into some ants or something while going potty in the yard. It could also be interdigital cysts or allergies? I'm not sure, can anybody tell from the pics.

    I did notice a few days ago she was licking at her paw so possibly could've began a few days ago. Anybody have any advice or input? I'd appreciate it, and sorry about lack of info I'm at work and pics are from my wife back at home.

    interdigital cysts.... caused by allergies. Can soak in epsom salts and that helps. Preperation H can be put on them too. BUT if you can figure out the allergy you will be much better off than just treating them. THIS is the problem a lot of us bully owners face. My Miila is a mess and has been since getting her. I think with her some is food allergies but a lot of also seasonal I believe.

    Is this a first time having them? Have you changed foods, snacks or anything recently?

    I'm with her and It doesn't seem to bother her right now...there was also one flea on her last week, though we've treated her for that, not sure if that has to do with it either.

    The flea treatment I wouldnt think would be the cause so much but not 100%. Miila seems worse after the gardeners come, so grass is an issue for her I believe also.

    First time. We are currently on Fromm beef frittata, and have made it through almost one bag. We did mix some wet Canidae food on Tuesday (her treat for graduating puppy class). I do want to get her tested for allergies now.

    hmmmmm well it could be either but maybe leaning toward the canidae. I would try not giving the canidae and see if they continue. If so, you might want to try a diff flavor of the fromm. They have 4 now that are grain free and can be switched between easily with no having to mix or anything. It is easier to try and rule out the food allergies than it is seasonal for sure.

    Is that common?

    Should I give her some Benadryl also?

    Food allergies are a common cause of them. Any allergies are but being that food is so much easier to figure out I would start there. You can try benedryl, so long as there is no tylenol in your benedryl. 25mg per 25 pounds so 1 pill per 25 pounds.
