Cyst/Blister between toes

Recommended Posts

mikegillam

About 4 days ago, I took my lab to a beach to run/swim.  The next day he was limping around ( I thought he was sore)but when checking on Sunday, I found a large, cyst? between the toes on the bottom of his front foot.  Seemed to be filled with fluid.  I did not see any injury, thorn, fish bone, etc, and began soaking in epson salts 2-3 times a day.  It has reduced by about 50%, doesn't seem to cause any discomfort, except if I squeeze it.  I do have a vet appt. Friday night, but wondering if anyone has dealt with something like this.

Likely an interdigital cyst due to either a puncture or more likely allergy based.  Probably some antibiotics are in order, maybe lance and flush it.  If it recurs then it reeks of allergies and some prednisone might be useful.

This is the best pic I could get.  I am not sure if this is a reaction to some trauma or an infection.  It has gotten smaller over the last week...it doesn't seem to be filled with liquid, feels more like a mass to me.  I did visit the vet yesterday, put the dog on antibiotics and prednisone for 2 weeks , in addition to the 2-3 times a day epson salt soaks I have been doing, and then re-evaluate.  http://content.invisioncic.com/r266882/monthly_2018_05/IMG_0280.JPG.5d2de56337e53ab55a9f80e719d577ae.JPG

This is an interdigital cyst. Cash had this reoccur a couple/several times. I didn't know what it was and assumed a sliver or some foreign object was stuck under the skin between the toes. I had an appt with my vet to remove some tissue between the toes to get rid if what was causing it. Thankfully I consulted with Dogwood who thought it was an interdigital cyst, so I cancelled the surgery. It cleared up and it has been 2 years and it hasn't been back.
