Re: Paw infection

Quick update. Dogs paw is back to normal. I kept it extra clean. Daily soaks in epsom salt. Bacitracin and bandaged. Thanks for the advice! Good luck in the off season.

Re: Paw infection

I kind of thought it was a digital cyst. I was doing a bunch of research and that's what it look like. I was cleaning it with some peroxide and I'm going to start soaking it in Epson salt. If that doesn't work then I'll take him to the vet.Thanks for the help.

The limp got a little worse so i checked his paws. In between his toes he had a big red sore. Im thinking he must have cu...

Re: Late season grouse in NY state

Was up at Partridge run a few weeks ago. Didn't get anything but I was hunting in some tough conditions. I went right after a big snow/ice storm and it was tough to keep my footing and the dog as well. But I've heard good things about it. So it's probably worth a try
