    Don't use regular salt! If it's open, it will burn like the dickens! You can use peroxide tonight, and dry it. Neosporin makes my bullies lick the area, so I would just use peroxide tonight, and dry it really well...

    I cleaned it with peroxide and wrapped it up real ghetto like! Luckily she doesn't care at all and would rather sleep than mess with it. Thanks for all the advice! I thought I was gonna have a heart attack.

    Ill prolly get flack n told noooooo for saying this lol but when Porkys rupture like that I milk it until it bleeds pure bright red blood, I do that every time I clean it with peroxide (4 times a day) n within 2 days usually its gone n she just has a tiny scab at the opening!! If I don't milk it prior to cleaning it (n by milking I mean just gently squeezing it like a zit) I've found they heal get filled with puss n end up a lot bigger than they were n they seem to actually hurt her a lot when they fill with puss

    Yes, let her walk around in a warm epsom salts bath. You can also try panalog or animax ointment until it heals to keep the scab from cracking/bleeding. Don't squeeze or pop the cyst, or you can make it go deeper and cause infection. Keep her from licking it, if you can, I used to put a sock on my bully's foot...
    See I have the opposite problem if I don't squeeze Porkys to get the serosanguinous fluid out it builds up n causes her a lot of pain n then seems to get infected, but if I milk it until its bright red blood coming out it seems to heal in a day or two n she's fine.

    Zeus had that. Higher on the foot though. It started off really small and he kept licking it and itching it which caused the bleeding and it getting bigger. I bought him the hydrocortisone cream from petsmart.. It dried up and was gone right away. He hasn't gotten it again. And that was the first time.

Epsom Salt will definatley help (I just put Sally in the tub and did a cup of salt to 1/2 gal or so of warm water (I put that in a bowl) and let her foot soak for about 5 mintues and then rinse her off. Go get some chlorhexidine (Hibiclens) at Walgreens or Walmart. It's what really helped.

    Before we got Pan's allergies under control he got inter digital cysts. Now we have him on a strict diet and as part of his cleaning ritual we clean his paws with gold listerine. The antiseptic cleans out anything that may be trying to grow in there and the alcohol in it dries quickly to keep the moisture out of it. Trick is to keep it as dry as possible. Pan hates standing in water to the Epsom soak didn't work for us. Hope you baby feels better soon!

    Alyssa, if she's not chewing at it, there's no need to wrap it up and it's better if left unwrapped so it can air out. I don't think it will slow the healing up but you'll need to clean this twice a day if possible and until it's completely healed up. I quite cleaning Sally's too soon and it flared back up. The hole may get a bit bigger but it will slowly close up. It took Sally about about 3 weeks.

    She's looks so so sweet there too.

    She likes to lick her feet when she's going to sleep. It's like a toddler sucking their thumb. Adorable. So while I'm gone or asleep I'm gonna wrap it up.
