    Poor @TyTysmom I even love his fat feet,I want to kiss them.(I don't like human feet..)
    Sounds like a plan, this was day one.... so its a tad better now but still swollen. I'll post an updated pic tonight. Thanks for grounding me I've been kissing his paw, and rubbing it, all weekend... because he'll find me wherever I am and come hand me his paw. My baby.

    You're doing good with your care. Keep the benadryl going for at least a couple more days. If you don't see obvious improvement after 5-6 days then there may be a foreign object in the paw...and a trip to the Vet might be best. Look for discharge at the "prick" site. I'm betting he'll be much better in 2 more days.
    GL!

    If your kisses don't heal it, what do you think the vet can do...I'm sure it will be fine in no time

    Its so funny because when its someone else's baby I have some sense, but when it comes to mine - I turn into goop. LOL I have to admit I've been loving the "mama's boy" the past couple of days. Just stinks that it came from having his paw hurt. My big baby!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Ouch, Tyson! I think your reactions have been spot-on-normal, Jessica! We all turn to some form of goop when our babies get hurt or aren't feeling well, don't we?

    That's why this site is so valuable...to help support and encourage one another. I have nothing to add to the already-amazing-and-awesome feedback you got. Just wanted to send Tyson and you lots of hugs and kisses. Keep us posted on how he's progressing.

    Poor TyTy I don't have dog experience with this but I do have some people experience! I'm thinking maybe it's a wasp or a bee sting and I will tell you that sometimes the stinger does come out, other times you can't see it. At any rate, everyone's body handles allergic reactions differently, if it's not getting worse I wouldn't be as concerned about it. I'm allergic to bees, only ever got stung once and was given Benadryl and also steroids (they help with the swelling, for people anyway I'm not sure if a vet would follow a similar treatment) but it truly was a few weeks before the swelling went completely away. I'm guessing because of where it is on his paw that's probably making it heal longer because he's irritating it when he walks on it. I would try to keep him off it if possible and if you don't notice improvement in the next couple days bring him in to have the vet check him out. I know Tyson is in the best of hands and that you are taking the best possible care of him he's lucky to have such an awesome mom. Please keep us posted of how you guys make out! Hugs from Murray and me

    Oh no, poor sweet Tyson
    To me, too, it sounds like he has been stung or bitten. I know a human who got bitten by a spider (my dad), it lastet for some time (swelling, redness and pain).
    I hope Tyson feels better soon and the swelling disappears fast.

    Little early for fire ants but it could be a ground hornet sting.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Mamas doing better after reading replies here hee hee

    So I notice some improvement it's still swollen but not as bad, and his toe swelling seems to have moved up, I should have taken the pic before I applied the powder, doh! But you can kinda see his toe #2 from left. Bottom looks much better! Just did soak & applied more Gold Bond.

    FYI..... dilute it if it says so on bottle....

    Peppermint*essential oil has analgesic, anesthetic, as well as anti-inflammatory properties, which provide relief for pain (especially migraines), stiffness, and inflammation associated with arthritis. Its even a great natural oil for weight-loss.
