1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey everyone,

I took our nearly 2 year old husky arya to the vet this morning after my brother found a nasty bump on her right rear paw pad. The doctor tells me it appears to be an infection, and he prescribed two medications. He then said if the swelling doesn't go down within about a week, it may be a tumor.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Arya shows no discomfort running on it but she's licking it a lot and it's killing me to know she has this nasty looking thing on her foot.

Thanks

Tasha had something like this once. It turned out she had gotten something stuck in her paw and then grew an abscess around it. It was a long time ago, but from what I remember, antibiotics cleared it up.

Did the vet give you a cone of shame? If not, I'd go purchase one asap. It wont heal if she licks it!

How would you soak it in Epsom salts? That's a real question, the only thing I could think of would be stand her in a bath tub.

Maybe wrap with a washcloth soaked in it? Or hold her foot in a bucket (seriously, I have done this). Standing in the bathtub could work too.

i did it in a bucket, well more like a kitty litter box i had from our chinchillas but it worked good, just kept the one foot in there for as long as i could then used a bootie on the foot to keep it clean after that.
