    Default Pierogi has licked and chewed in between her toes raw....

    Hey Everyone,

    Yesterday morning, our bulldog Pierogi started licking and chewing in between her toes on her right paw. It is very raw, red and a little bloody. She has a cortisone spray from previous hotspots. I called the vet and was encouraged to spray it on her feet to try and help sooth her itching. All she does is try to lick it off.

    Looking for other solutions to deal with giving her relief. It is very moist in between her toes, like a plasma, so I am worried an infection may be setting in and want to get this take care of as soon as possible.

    There has been no change in her food, other than rotating the flavors of the Fromm's 5 Star Grain Free Brand, so I am thinking it is either from an environmental allergy or from not drying her feet good enough after time in her puppy pool.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to help with Pierogi!!!

    Sounds like your baby is suffering from yeasty paws. If you go to our home page search yeasty paws to find threads discussing this topic. I can't copy them for you on my iPad. Hope your baby feels better soon!!!

    Agree ... seems to be from not drying her feet after pool time... need to keep in between the toes dry when it is humid and hot, yeast LOVEs those warm spots. Bath in epsom salt and dry real good...

    Agreed, soak paws in Epsom salt, and certainly get a good antibacterial antifungal shampoo like pharmaseb to wash them with.
