    Yeah I'd wait until Tuesday, unless something changes.

    it can take a a few weeks to see the results of the new food REALLY kick in.... so I would not change anything as this all could still be from being on the crappy food

    Hi @HeatherWilson was that an awesome article or what....Even if your boy goes on meds for his cysts, you can still do the soak for Maintenance. They come in contact with soo much outside...Do you Have a vet that specializes in Bulldogs? My vet is, and ya know what, his prices are a little less, it's all about the knowledge ! Good luck and I think it's great you worry about every little thing, when it comes to this breed, it's better to be safe. Your being a great Bully Mamma! Keep us updated, OK...

    Ouch they look really painful. . If you search on here for interdigital cysts I've seen some people have great success with Vetericyn and betadyne. The couple of times I've had it I got to em right away so they didn't last long. Also have you read Jeannie's awesome article on them? If not here's the link (you can always find it on the home page too)

    Hi @2BullyMama @desertskybulldogs @Harleyleeotis12321

    Okay, we went and bought the Povidone Iodine and gave him a foot soak according to the directions on the article. Does Walter look thrilled? LOL Those are my husband's arms in the picture.

    He decided to take a seat.

    Right now he seems in really good spirits. He is alert and chewing on one of his toys. He also pooped again, and though it wasn't as much as usual, it's still coming out - so that's good.

    Thanks again, everyone. I will keep you posted!

    He is loving all the care and attention he's getting too! He must feel good and content to be chewing on toys.

    That looks great and he couldn't look any cuter!, it's a bacteria killer so you really can't do any better. Hope it works and he's on the road to recovery. Keep up on it until they are completely gone too. I learned that from Jeannie's article.

    My Oscar was pretty much experiencing the same. He had a cyst the size of a nickel & I took him in. The dr said that wasn't a cyst since it was so big but it was a lesion. They did a biopsy & found out he had MRSA. He was put on prednisone & an antibiotic. He will need to be on medications for a while to fight the infection. I suggest you take your dog to the vet & have them biopsy the cyst to see what it is!

    What a handsome Bully! We had a lot of problems with cysts when we first got our kids, changing food helped a lot, but it did take time. Good luck, Walter got a great home.
