    Default Cysts

    I noticed a cyst between one of Brutus' toes so I started wiping it down with Douxo pads. Now I just noticed he has two more. One on the same foot and another on the other foot? What causes this and how hard is it to make them go away.

    We're battling them now as well.
    With Blue, it's allergies. My vet said ingrown hairs can cause them too.
    @JeannieCO has an article here on them. She's had luck with epsom salt soaks. http://www.englishbulldognews.com/co...erdigital-Cyst

    I'm trying Vetericyn since I haven't had much luck with Douxo.
    Hoping the Vetericyn helps.

    One important thing is to keep him from licking them. I think that's what's been keeping Blue's from healing. He licks them way too much.

    Yes, I've heard the epsom salt baths can help a lot. Rosalie, try soaking Brutus' affected paws in a tub of epsom salt mixed with water for a few minutes every day.

    Both @Chumley and I used Vetricyn and it really worked.

    Once in the morning and once at night it was gone in like 4 days. He didn't like me spraying his toes at all but it worked really well.

    I will try that as well. He does not lick his paws so I guess that's good. Do I buy this over the counter?
