You are currently helping a friend of mine with her sick cat, and I was hoping that you could help me with Shilo my 13 year old Aussie Sheperd.
Two years ago she had two interdigital cysts removed from her paw. They have returned this year. We have tried treating them with antibiotics, soaking & apply a salve...they seem to return no matter what we do. Surgical removal is not an option...she also has a bad heart. Currently we are putting an ointment on it at night & covering it with a sock so that she doesn't lick it. She has built up quite a bit of scar tissue on the bottom of her paw. None of what I have told you has stopped her eating, walking or playing schedule...she just licks her paw too much.
Is this anything you have seen before? Have you had any luck treating something like this?
Any advise will be welcome!
