    Default Help! Bloody foot!

    Over the weekend Maggie came with my boyfriend and me to visit his parents. When we were leaving this morning I noticed in between her toes was red and swollen. This has happened before whenever she has a random allergy to something she ate so I figured maybe she ate something at his parents house and didn't pay much attention. We got home today and i had errands to run so I left her at home. I came back to that spot bleeding all over her foot! I'm horrified. I have no clue what's wrong. She doesn't seem to be hurting. She's not favoring it and she's trying to play. I cleaned up the blood and cleaned the wound but I have no clue what this could be from.
    There seems to be a hole in the bump where it's bleeding.

    Are they pretty safe? Could she get further infection from it?

    I'm thinking that I read on here to soak the paw in Epsom salt & that helps to heal them! Good luck...

    My Bentley had one of those. I found on her to soak it epsom salt and keep it dry. I did struggle to keep his foot in the epsom salt and water for 5-10 minutes but we made it work. I dried it and then put an ointment on it the vet gave me. It cleared up in no time. Good Luck

    Do you think I could use plain salt water? I don't have epsom salt and everything is closed here. I have plenty of salt and kosher salt though

    I don't know for sure if that would work or not. It does look pretty dry from the last pic I saw I would just do antibiotic ointment

    You can clean it Hydrogen Peroxide too and put Neosporin on it.

    Hi there. Yes that's an Interdigital Cyst. I recently experience by first one with Sally, my rescue girl. Here's is all healed up now but it will take work on your part. Rest assured though the work it only minutes and nothing too drastic. Here is the link to the thread I started that has quite a bit of good information and pictures of Sally's. 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.

    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...
