    I would try some betadine soaks daily followed by an antibiotic cream like Nu-Stock or Neosporin, or try Bag Balm.

    Also, try switching to a frozen raw dog food, duck protein to start

    It wonít clear up cause itís only a indigital cyst. @Dollys Owner got you covered. I use Bag Balm. You can also pierce the cyst, soak paws in epsom salt then put bag balm or NuStock. BTW definitely get your dog off Royal Canin as you will end up going to your vet more often. Indigital cyst comes on goes on all web feet dogs. Itís not an allergy either. You might be giving shots for no reason. Unless your dog ďreallyĒ have allergies ok but if it was for that cyst, I personally would stop the shots. It brings down an immune system. Your dog needs a good grain free diet. Best one is raw diet. Youíll eliminate allergies. Or get a quality kibble like Acana single protein bags. If your vet pushes and insist for RC n shots for indigital cyst, I would have doubts on my vet. Your vet should definitely know itís IC which again are harmless

    My Walter has horrific allergies... we had him tested years ago, and we do the cytopoint shots on a regular basis. Some dogs have lower immune systems because of allergies... IMO they are a Godsend. We advise people to check on Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor to look for dog food that fits their budgets, and what is available in their area. I have had my dogs on Fromm's, Earthborn Holistic, Acana, Orijen and Merrick... all great dog foods (grain-free) and now I give them Primal raw patties, with Earthborn Holistic kibble in the morning.

    Agreed... change the food. My first bulldog got these a lot, then we changed his food and had allergy testing done... he was allergic to rice, chicken and dairy.. Also, try to wipe his paws and keep them dry after coming in from outside wetness can add to the problem
