A. This is not uncommon in this breed and requires extensive treatment and occasionally surgery to remove the infection. Medicated foot baths, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and diets and supplements to improve the strength and condition of the skin barrier are all required at various stages so it is important to get an appointment and get medication started to relieve his discomfort and prevent the infection from spreading to the bone.
A. If he is licking or chewing, place an e-collar (cone) on him to prevent further trauma. A soak in an Epsom salt solution may provide relief. See your vet to treat any infection or to determine the underlying cause.
