    Default Wallygator has another interdigital cyst... Ugh!

    I took the pups to the groomers yesterday, and I get a pic from the groomer showing Wally has ANOTHER cyst in his front paw... I swear this is round 3 since the summer. I feel bad because I hurt my back last weekend, so I wasn't able to do my normal grooming routine on the pups and I didn't catch it.

    He's in a MOOD as well... he snapped at Lily twice yesterday, she was petting him in the truck on the way home from the groomers (I had to pull over to break up him & Willow because of course Willow was trying to protect Lily) and last night I tried putting some vetericyn on his paw. I ended up putting a muzzle on him to get the job done... Ugh!

    I'm going to contact the vet today, but obviously I need to get to the bottom of this. I feed them Fromm's Beef Frittata in the morning, and Pork & Peas in the evening. Treats are only grain-free, and I give them the usual veggies and fruits. I have been giving them pumpkin because I think Wally is also having another anal gland issue, and I was hoping that this would take care of that.

    My question is should I do a food trial?!! AND if I do what should I look for? This is his 3rd cyst so obviously something is going on... other than his anal gland issue, I don't notice anything else. Coat and skin look great, he has gained some weight but nothing that the vet seems concerned about.

    Probiotics, prebiotics and what ever biotics you can get your hands on. I believe skin health and all kinds of health starts from the digestive system. You know that I think that nothing beats raw food and with kibble it's even more important that you feed those bacteria to your bully. Also Digestive enzymes are important since the food is all "dead" and there is not enough even if the bag says they've been added.

    Tyson had one pop up 2 days ago after a walk. I'm currently soaking twice and day and applying animax ointment. I have no idea how to avoid them but I guess I should be thankful bc he doesnt get them often. His one toe is all swollen too, I think something bit him, and it caused the reaction, and the cyst.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    I agree with all the above- also if you can, soak the paw for 5 min daily in a betadine bath for a week or two and add the ointment afterward. Put some socks on Wally if he licks the ointment.
    Herbsmith Microflora Plus was mentioned here before for both probiotics and enzymes. If not you can try the sauerkraut you buy from the fridge section, or low fat probiotic yoghurt, or kefir. Another great supplement you can try is turmeric 1/4 tsp mixed with 6 grinds of pepper and 1 tsp coconut oil. Why don't you try to feed a base mix like Honest Kitchen Kindly and adding your own protein so you can see if your dog is reacting to any specific proteins?

    I have actually considered Honest Kitchen because SO many people on here have had good results w/it. Thank you SO much for you advice...

    Also if I may suggest, get yourself some frankincense oil. Best oil to boost the immune system.

    I'm going back to the beef and see what happens... what proteins are you using for the boys?

    I agree... and I've been taking him for walks on the days when the weather is nice, and I'm sure it's painful to walk.
