  1. I got 3M brand, it was $8 so definitely not cheap. I saw the gorilla tape there but thought duct tape would suffice. I guess I’ll have to get the other one.
  2. How do you use duct tape though? I just tried it and it doesn’t even stick.
  3. I’ve been in contact with Dr. Couto and he confirmed there is a corn. If I have to do surgery later on then fine, but I can’t afford it right now after all the money I just spent trying to clear this infection. I did join that Facebook group and for some good info. I tried duct tape just now and it doesn’t stick AT ALL. So not sure what was wrong there.
  4. Yeah I wasn’t going to do surgery. And now I just noticed another one on his other paw, but that is kind of on the side so I don’t think it’s been bothering him. I bought one of those dental tools to try and hull it myself. I also bought some duct tape, but haven’t tried it yet. How long did you leave the tape on?
  5. My dog has his first corn, along with an infection in that same toe that he’s been battling for weeks. He’s still limping and I really think it’s the corn. I’ve read several treatments for corns and I called one vet and got quoted $750 for removal and anesthesia. Is this a process that requires them to be asleep? I saw videos of corn hulling and the dog was awake. Does it hurt the dog? I really don’t want to do any type of surgery. I ordered some bag balm and a therapaw boot for the meantime. It’s not yet sticking out of his paw pad, the area kind of dips in. Are there any of ways to remove th
  6. Alabama rot was mentioned, but I think by now it’s been disregarded. I really don’t think any actual testing has been done on anything specific. The only testing they did was fluid from the toe and it came back as bacteria, but didn’t say what kind. I will ask about lepto next time I speak with the doctor. We hadn’t been to the dog park in a few weeks before this happened, but he was at daycare that week.
  7. I don’t really know if anything specific has been tested for. Just for a bacteria, which is what the doctor thinks it is. Just a bad infection. I did consult with Dr. Couto over email today and he mentioned that Tony has a corn, but doesn’t seem to think that’s the whole problem because of the fever and infection he had. I saw the vet today and he prescribed another round of Baytril antibiotics and if that doesn’t work then they will have to take the toe. But I’m still waiting on Dr. Couto to tell me what he thinks.. he’s not done looking at all the information I sent over. As far as lepto
  8. Thank you. I have heard of this doctor. I came across a website that had his name and have thought about emailing, but I wasn’t sure if he was still in practice.
  9. Yes, he had x-rays done twice at two different vets and they didn’t see anything. The bones looked normal too, which I was worried it was cancer. What’s strange is that the swelling spread to his other limbs, so that makes me think it’s something systemic because If something was just stuck in his toe wouldn’t that be the only foot affected? I’ve looked at it all over and can’t see anything there. It must have been some kind of infection because the antibiotics did help.. but it’s not completely cured because he still can’t walk on it. So just trying to find out what causes the infection and
  10. He is 7. No there’s no fluid or anything that looks like he was bitten. Just red skin. I added the pics to google drive. See if this works. Facebook wouldn’t let me copy image location. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QVJtXIGwBDtgnRfUrl3BX-x29pYKBudV/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hQ1Qlqmw5x8ZsyRE73o9bjNoXdIBhBFl/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jovWGHUixZgugvOOz8LvVHvyeZGOyRHN/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JeYHTWdq0HwhSQCx39Ygl-_r4oLBWKMQ/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GaERYYo2RYj6CcjqwyZ3
  11. My dog, Tony, has been suffering from lameness for over three weeks now in his front left paw. It all started with a slight limp that turned into a high fever, all in the span of one afternoon. Bloodwork and X-rays came back normal. Ultrasound revealed an enlarged spleen. Infection of his toe is what was suspected, as his toe was swelling up at this point. He was put on antibiotics (clavamos) and steroids (prednisone). By day 3, his entire foot was swollen and by day 4, his back foot started to swell and he had red skin on his front right leg. I took him back to the vet and they changed antibi
