    Default Ok Now I'm Really Worried Here!!

    So it has been a few days now since I found the cyst ( I think?) on Lily's paw.
    I have held off from taking her to the vet b/c I thought it was just a small cyst.
    And that it would hopefully clear up in a few days.
    I am using epsom salt & witch hazel to treat it.
    And while it hasn't gotten any better or any worse up until this morning when I found blood on her pillow.
    I called the vet first thing and got her an appointment after work today.
    I still have no idea what this could be.
    Does it look like a small cyst to you guys? Something else?
    It doesn't seem to bother her at all. She will let me touch it.
    I have not seen her licking or biting at it.
    I'm really worried that I waited to long. I should of taken her to vet sooner!!
    I feel like a horrible mommy right now!!

    I'm still convinced this is an interdigital cyst… I remember Bella having them, and they did bleed. I will tag some members that have dealt w/this...

    Rampage used to get these all the time - he was allergic to grass and if I didn't keep his feet meticulously clean he would get a cyst - we got a good cleaning routine down and there were no problems after that.
    I too think it's a cyst and should clear up. Anything new with Lily? New park or new area she may be walking in? Bulldogs can have different allergy levels for different types of grass.

    You are not a bad mom, breathe. That's definitely a cyst, and they do bleed. Use some epsom salts in the bathtub and let her walk around in them for 10 minutes twice a day. For a really quick fix get a bottle of VETRICYN off Amazon. It will make it go away quick.

    Buster and Chum got their cysts at about the same time. @pdolphin27 found this veterycin on Amazon and recommended it to me..the cyst was gone in a mater of days...seemed to work faster than the Epsom salts baths 3 times a day..

    Ok thanks..I was curious but had never tried it..my vet actually gave me drops called Synotic that immediately shrink them..Romeo had a few that were large blood bubbles ans looked so painful so I just use a drop of that if he gets one..he had them constantly for a few months but it's been almost a year since he's had one

    Nothing comes to mind. She goes in our backyard like she always has. But maybe some new grass or something like that came up. Or maybe she walked in something while on a walk. I'm going to have to come up with a cleaning routine as well.
    Thanks
