    I tried just soaking his foot in a pot of water because hes not a fan of the tub but he wasnt having any of that! Is 2 cups of Epsom good for a few inches of water in the tub?

    That may be a bit much but will do no harm. I used about a cup in a medium sized baking bowl and filled that about 2/3 full.

    I imagine you are, lol. I ended up using about 3/4 cup each time to a cup. Mostly 3/4. I was never able to get the amount I was suppose to use so I just winged it.

    I used 1 cup to a dish pan if water... remember the pans that used to be in the kitchen sink when we were younger. -- nowadays that is the soak cycle on the dishwasher. I used that for Nitschke. Still have it and use it to wash the mud off Cheli when he is in the part of the yard he is not to go in. STINKER!

    dealing with these and other itchies, Lola had us up every hour last night

    in Canada you have to buy chlorohexidine from the pharmacist, its called stanhexidine (with isopropanol). or you can buy chlorhexidine gluconate 20% and dilute it. i ordered both since we are out of douxo wipes (godsend but i buy from Amazon and deliver to states). one other option is chloroxylenol, brand name dettol which you must dilute and boy its strong. also got yellow Listerine but does not have those particular active ingredients.

    I was doing Epsom salt water compresses, witchhazel, then triple antibiotic cream but no luck.

    now i start Epsom salt bath for feets in tub, wash off with dettol and then dry, apply Listerine with cotton, allow to dry, apply antibiotic cream. and seriously, this isn't even her itchy parts.
