    Default Bulldog Toe Swelling Need Advice.

    Does anyone know what might be causing my Bulldogs paw to swell up like this? For the past month his one of his rear toes has doubled in size and appears mildly irritated. Iíve checked his paws repeatedly and I canít find any source of abrasion, cut, foreign object etc. Surprisingly it doesnít seem to bother my Bully Chubs at all. Apparently Iím more concerned than he is with the inflammation. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to treat something like this? Iíve been giving him Epson salt soaks for his paws for a week but that hasnít helped.

    I have no answer as to what this might be, but I would take him to a vet to have it assessed!

    Possibly infection especially if it's warm or hotter then other toes your just unable to see the origin which lots of times is deep between toes and is fungal In origin. Needs vet assist on that one

    Hmmm. Did it just appear out of no where? Have you checked for any tiny pokes? Like a spider/bug bite possibly? Is it hot?

    Odd that it's just that one toe. He could have something embedded under the skin that is causing it to swell up like that. Can you feel anything unusual?

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    It is odd that it doesn't seem to bother him-but it could be an infection. Should have your vet check it out-you wouldn't want it to proceed into something more serious.... @pfgray2008

    I agree with the gang, could be something going on inside the toe... have a vet look at it

    Well that was a huge waste of time and money $60 for office visit. I went to a new highly recommended Vet in Bay Area for Bulldogs and the Vet took one look at Chubs for about 5 seconds and said "if it's not bothering him I wouldn't worry about it." She didn't even bother to turn on the exam light. I drove 2 hours roundtrip for that professional advice, hell she didn't even bother to mention any other possibilities of cause or treatment. Granted I'm grateful it doesn't appear to be serious but it's still odd and it's certainly not normal.
