Ok.. are we SURE this is an indigital cyst?? (warning, graphic pics)

Ok so its doubled in size and is now deep purple and there is a wart-sized THING on it full of puss and appears to be draining puss out of it slowly. We have done the Epsom soaks in nice hot water, but the vet wasnt open today for me to get that ointment from. Last night, after his Epsom soak, I went on and bathed him with Malesab shampoo and made sure to get his feet really good. Then I took the Malesab wipes to them and cleaned them extra good- in between and under his toes...just all over his toes/feet.

I just want to make sure this is still what you guys think it is and not a spider bite.

Yes I have done that and it works very well!!

once I pop it I take a syringe (without a needle) full of peroxide and squirt it in there.... my dogs haven't had any lately but when they did it worked usually dried up in a day or so....

Butter gets these sometimes.... I actually have found...

that popping them and putting peroxide on them works for me... I cannot say it works for everyone but mine will be gone overnight if I do this.

Friday gets these all the time now....

and my vet says they are cysts. She puts a special drying agent on it and it dries out in no time. Friday gets one in the same spots atleast once a month (she is sickly) and we just do the routine when it comes back....clean it up, I put a little listerine (brown) on it and then the next day it looks much better.

Yep, unfortunately that IS an IDC Cyst.

Some good suggestions here on how to deal with it. Try at least one medical approach, having some patience, before you (vet) considers putting a knife to it.

We have used bleach and water

and it works. Instead of getting them all wet, I place them in a dry tub and use a deep plastic container. I use old Chinese soup containers from take out. I fill with water and a couple tablespoons of bleach and put the paw with the cyst in there. Try to have him step in it and stand still for as long as possible. Treats help. Usually for us about 5 minutes. Dry completely as the bleachy paw can stain carpets.

Massengill douch does the trick

Buy a thing of massengill and put half the solution an plastic container big enough to put his paw in. Place it in the microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds so its not really cold, then put his paw in it for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes take his paw out and pat dry. Do this 2 times a day for 3 days. He will be as good as new. happy.gif

Ms. Helen has a treatment for these.. I think it

is Bleach & Water soaks. You can do a search on the medical board and probably find it. I'm not sure the amounts of each but...

I think it is 1/2 cup to a gallon of water BUT CHECK ME OUT I am not sure

I've used in a long time ago on Brody boy. and it worked well.

good luck

Preparation H...

works great to get rid of them. I've used this on Gabe a couple times and it's gone right away within a couple days without getting all full of puss. I try to put it on when I first notice them.

Rocky gets them all the time, and they can get quite big like that,you can soak them in epsom salts ,
