    Materials and methods
    Twenty dogs were examined for staphylococcal deep
    pyoderma at the Cornell University College of Veterinary
    Medicine (Table 1). The dogs ranged from 4 mo to 11 y
    of age, represented numerous breeds and a mongrel,
    and consisted of 14 males and 6 females. Weights
    ranged from 11 to 61 kg. Duration of clinical signs
    ranged from 2 wk to 4 y. Thirteen dogs had received
    prior antibiotic therapy and had recurrent infections. All
    dogs had deep pyoderma involving the paws, pressure
    points, face, or large areas of the body surface. Eight dogs
    had previously diagnosed concurrent dermatoses
    (Table 2) that may have been predisposing factors for the
    development of deep pyoderma. The other 12 dogs had
    no identifiable predisposing cause. Skin scrapings and
    microscopic examination of pus from skin lesions were
    performed on all dogs. Cytological examination of
    pus expressed from draining tracts revealed pyogranulomatous inflammation, wherein the majority of neutrophils were degenerate and many contained phagocytosed cocci. Exudate collected from intact nodules and
    plaques on all dogs was submitted for bacterial culture
    and antibiotic susceptibility testing.
    To be admitted into the study, all dogs had to have a
    positive culture for S. intermedius that was tested for
    in vitro susceptibility to clindamycin. In vitro susceptibility to clindamycin was determined by the broth
    microdilution system, as recommended by the National
    Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (28). All
    plates were commercially prepared and tested by using
    the Radiometer Sensitive system (Sensititre Microbiology
    Systems, Radiometer America, Westlake, Ohio, USA).
    In addition, informed consent had to have been obtained
    from the dogs' owners. Clindamycin capsules (75 mg and
    150 mg) were administered PO at 11 mg/kg BW, q24h.
    Treatment with clindamycin was initiated at the time the
    dogs were discharged from the clinic, before the results
    of culture and in vitro antibiotic susceptibility testing
    were known. Treatment was continued until all active
    lesions had disappeared and then for another 7 d (1,29-31).
    In 13 dogs, response to therapy was assessed by reexaminations at the College of Veterinary Medicine. In
    7 dogs, response to therapy was assessed by reexaminations at the referring veterinarians' clinics and their
    subsequent telephone conversations with one of the
    authors. Reexaminations were performed every 2 to 3 wk.
    The post-treatment follow-up period was 3 mo for all
    dogs.
    Results
    Staphylococcus intermedius was isolated in pure culture
    from all 20 dogs. Eighteen (90%) of the 20 isolates
    were susceptible to clindamycin in vitro. The other 2 isolates were of intermediate susceptibility (case 16) or
    resistant (case 3).
    Twenty dogs were treated with clindamycin, and all
    20 had excellent responses (complete resolution of their
    infections). Treatment periods ranged from 21 to 91 d,
    with an average of 45 d. Five dogs (25%) suffered recurrences within the 3-month posttreatment follow-up
    period (Table 2). There did not appear to be any influence
    of age, sex, duration of disease, concurrent dermatosis
    (Table 2), or previous antibiotic therapy on the response
    to clindamycin therapy. One dog (case 2) vomited when
    the clindamycin was given on an empty stomach, but not
    when it was administered with food.
    Discussion
    Clindamycin produced an excellent result in 100% of
    the dogs treated, which compares very favorably with
    results reported with other antibiotics used to treat
    deep staphylococcal pyoderma in dogs: enrofloxacin (29),
    ormetoprim-sulfadimethoxine (30), tylosin (31),

    i know that at times cysts can be caused by ingrowing hair on the pads just like boils humans get,so its worth checking and if you see one then try and pluck it out,a friend of mine is having this problem she can see the ingrowing hair but her bully wont let her pull it ,karen

    I'll keep everyone updated, and Thank you again for your concern ----

    BTW , Maximus will be 2-Years Old tomorrow, New Years Day ! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAXIMUS !!
    You don't need a bathtub for this. I soaked paws in a cake pan on the kitchen floor. You have to do them one at a time and keep feeding cookies to keep em still, but it's possible. hahahahahahahaha

    I hope you feel better soon. Maxiumus too. Can't be fun for either of you.

    Gunny has suffered with these its called deep pyoderma its caused by a bacteria I tried all the soaks and all the antibotics the only thing that helped my gunny was clindamycin I have a study that was done with dogs with deep popyoderma (interdital cysts) I will paste it here hope it helps. they are so painful it just breaks your heart.

    Hi again,

    I had to pull up my original post and re-read the entire thread. Maximus' interdigital cysts remain. Today they are red and swollen and appear irritated. He has been on ATOPICA, steroids, antibiotics. He has had complete Allergy testing and it came back negative for just about everything. His face wrinkles are also red, raw and irritated, despite powders, creams, ointments and antibiotics. The one problem area that I see is CHICKEN. Although he does not get Chicken dog food, he does get cooked chicken, and that might be the problem. So I'm going to have to eliminate Chicken from his diet, and see if there is an improvement. I will retry the Zyrtec
    and look for the Ketoconazole/Chlorhexidine shampoo to soak his paws in, along with the Epsom salts.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Thanks.

    ~ Patrick
