An interdigital cyst is self explanatory when you understand the medical words. It’s a swelling between the toes. Another name for it is an interdigital furuncle.
Some breeds appear to be more disposed to this that others. But the cause can be from a variety of factors. Being on the foot, the first cause could be from something the dog walked on, such as a splinter or a sharp stone. A grass seed may be the cause.
In those breeds that are predisposed to this condition, it’s more likely to be an ingrown hair from bristly fur, such as with bulldogs and labradors.
When anyone has sustained an injury, the body goes into action. The swelling, or the cyst/furuncle, is the body’s way of isolating the problem. But is can be painful and inflammatory.
As bacteria is used by the body to help heal the problem, antibiotics are the first part of treatment vets use. But this does nothing for the cause. And antibiotics, along with other veterinary medication, is toxic to the liver and lowers the immune system. Digestive problems are a common consequence after antibiotic use.
Natural interdigital cysts treatment comes from a variety of sources. You can use a rather lengthy procedure, that also takes time and patience. You can soak the foot in warm water with Epsom’s salts for around 10 mins several times a day, followed by another soak in diluted hydrogen peroxide (that which is made for healing).
The healing may take several days to complete and show rather slow improvement, but it doesn’t have side effects and can be effective.
A much easier way is to use homeopathy. If you are new to homeopathy, then it is best to start by seeing a holistic vet who uses homeopathy as their primary method of treatment. Or a homeopath who treats animals.
If you already use homeopathy for yourself and have some experience in using the common remedies at home, then start by looking at common injury remedies. If they don’t appear to help, consider the remedies that help expel foreign objects.
Once you find the right remedy, not only will your dog be very happy to take it, the infection, the pain and the swelling will diminish quickly.
Learn to appreciate that your dog can help you select the right remedy. Remember, he knows what happened to his foot, whereas you may not. He knows what the remedies do for him, you don’t. Learn to work with him, rather than assume you or a professional practitioner knows best. Your dog knows best.
This way of your dog’s interdigital cysts treatment is enlightening, fast, empowering, gets to the cause, has no side effects and is inexpensive. Can you ever ask for more?
