    Default Swollen paw! :(

    My dog seems to be having all sorts of issues (seen through all my other threads) now one of his paws are swollen and seem to have cysts?

    Not really sure what this might be or what caused this... Please help me with any info!

    Thanks

    that looks like an interdigital cyst. Mine have had those before. What you can do is make an epsom salt bath and soak Duke's paws in it for several minutes, try doing this 2-3x/day if possible.

    Yes interdigital cysts.... Usually caused by an allergy.

    Hi, I'm sorry you're going through this with Duke. I agree with Cali, these look like interdigital cysts. There is a great article on the Home Page about Interdigital Cysts.

    These are stubborn little buggars. Mabel gets them from time to time. I have had good luck with apple cider vinegar soaks too. We went for about 18 months without one and she has one again that we are working on.

    How long did it take for it to go away on your dogs?

    Duke still has it and it seems to be getting bigger

    It can take a few weeks, have you got any malaceptic wipes? I found they worked quicker than Epsom salts, last time spike had one I used malaceptic wipes and it had virtually gone within a week.

    sometimes it can take a week or two for them to go away --- you also have to figure out the trigger for them. For my by, it was grass and rice allergies
