Interdigital cysts in dogs are becoming quite common. By pursuing a regime of natural dogs health you can resolve the problem and prevent them happening in the future.
These cysts (a fluid filled sac) occur between the toes. They can be painful and you are first alerted to their presence by your dog constantly licking their paws and/or limping when walking.
These can be caused by a variety of mechanical factors such as an ingrown hair or an embedded grass seed. Or it could have started because the immune system of the dog was low, allowing an infection such as a fungal growth to establish.
Sometimes they can clear up on their own, so watch and wait is a good way to start your plan of action. However, if you start to see the condition worsen, then you need to decide how to proceed.
First, establish if there are grass seeds around. They occur at the end of the growing season, whenever that is for your location (autumn in the northern countries, spring in others).
Grass seeds can be removed surgically, but this is not only an expensive procedure, it is also an invasive one. Homeopathic treatment is much more economical and not invasive at all. However, it may take a few days for the seed to emerge, depending on how deeply embedded it is.
Homeopathic treatment can also treat an ingrown hair and a fungal (or any other) infection and you won’t need to extend your mortgage in the process.
However, you do need to consider the possibility of your dogs low immune system. An infection can only establish itself when this is the case. A dog can look healthy and be active, but still have a low immune system.
The more infections they get, the longer it takes to recover, the more medications, the worse the immune system becomes.
Homeopathic treatment works by raising the immunity, so that your dog can now heal themselves, just as they were meant to. Diet also plays a large part in how healthy your dog is. Virtually all commercial dog food is full of empty promises and toxic substances, contributing to lowering your dogs health.
By combining a natural approach to your dogs health with a natural diet and homeopathic health care when required, you know you are supporting a healthy and capable immune system.
