Bacterial Pododermatitis

Recommended Posts

Miriam had a lump/blister show up on her front paw in between the pads back in April. Took her to the vet to have it aspirated. The only thing that was found was blood. The lump itself has become smaller, but it is bothering her more. It does swell up occasionally. I took her back to the vet today and the vet aspirated it again. Again there were no cancer cells to be found. There is an increase in white blood cells. The vet suspects Bacterial Pododermatitis and we are going to start by trying antibiotics.


Does anyone have experience with this? Is this something that can be surgically removed if the antibiotics can't do anything?
