    Just popping in to say hi and to see how the foot is.

    I also wanted to share with you something I read. If you give your dog a Tums twice a day they will not get cysts between their toes. I don't know if it works but I thought I would pass it on.

    I meant to post this two days ago, dohhh. It's getting better. Still doing the twice a day cleaning but with just the Hibicleans. Tums huh? Like the colored tums. That's very interesting.

    Finn has one of these cysts as well...just noticed last night. @JeannieCO, with the epsom salts do you just put it in the tub and have Sally stand in the water for awhile? I read it could be a fungal cause too and that antifungals, like tinactin are helpful. I'm going to start w/the epsom bath first and see how it goes.

    Henny, I wasn’t quite sure how much Epsom salt to use so I followed the direction, well sorta. I used 1 cup and just put that into a large bowl with about gal or so of warm water and then swirled it around until it dissolved. I put sally’s paw in the bowl and then let her soak in it for a few minutes and squeezed the cyst to get what gunk would come out. Mostly just oozed a bit of blood. Then I rinsed the bowl and filled it with warm water again and used the Hibiclens and washed it off. Then I use the ointment I have that I got from her vet (it’s for skin lesions and is great stuff). The last few days I’ve just used the Hibiclens. I’m going to do an Epsom soak tonight though. Whole process only takes about 5 minutes. You can put Finn in the tub and use the bowl in there, that’s what I did.

    You’ll notice a difference within the first 24 hours too. Don’t stop with the treatments like I did until it’s completely healed up or it’ll flare right back up.

    It's amazing what we continue to learn huh?

    I am still dealing with this with Otis, the vet said they are not to bad, first visit he had cortisone shot - it got better but did not go away fully, brought him back a couple weeks later and he has him on predisone, again, looks better but not going away - did try the Epson salt soaks and it didn't seem to help. Otis has grass allergies so I think that is what is aggravating it. Nasty buggers just wont heal totally but they are not bothersome and are not flared up. I'll be interested to see how everyone makes out. Will also update if anything changes on my end.
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees

    Looking much better! They take so long to heal. All I know is the lady said her grandfather was a vet and he swore by the Tums!

    They are really painful. I would use the hibiclens as well as the epsom bath because the hibiclens will kill any bacteria that is in or around it for up to six hours especially after it opens up. The epsom bath just helps with the swelling. You can buy the hibiclens at Walmart, Walgreens or CVS.

    Yeah it does! I did the the Epsom soak tonight and will do that every evening instead of twice daily. I'll have to look into the Tums for my own curiosity.

    Hello! I'm new to the site, and I have been looking for answers to the interdigital cysts as well. Our Doof has one and I've been soaking it, but it looks like it is leaking. Is it still okay to soak it in the epsom salt or should I just wrap his paw up in a warm compress to help ease it?
