The interdigital cysts treatment for dogs can be simple, easy and carried out without the services of a veterinarian. But first, let’s examine what it is.

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?

You know how often people struggle with their dog’s health? They want to know WHY they suffer with health issues and all their veterinarian can offer is drugs and more drugs? They feel helpless and at the mercy of another.Well, what I do is to help you pinpoint WHY your dog is getting sick and implement a strategy that takes you to a feeling of empowerment, of being in control of their life. A strategy that restores their health and allows you, and them, to enjoy life.

      Great article again.My older dog Boo-Boo developed two cysts on his back last year.I was using castor oil over night and calcium bentonite clay ( “terramin” is a brand name )during a day to bring them to the surface of the skin and extract them.I would like to know what caused such cysts .My dogs eat mostly organic meats,organic eggs,organic ,unpasteurized cream and butter as a treat.I give them also unripe papaya as it helps to digest the meat and sometimes I add some green vegetable juice to the papaya puree.Once or twice a week I give them some “high meat”-as it supplies certain bacterias to their systems-I found this recipe in “We want to live-The primal diet” by Aajonas Vanderplanitz. Couple times a year my dogs get “florescence tea” for two months in a row as a detox treatment.They get lots of exercise every day. My older dog is not neutered -I don’t believe that removing reproductive organs of any living creature makes it healthy,actually it compromises animal’s health . Unfortunately,my younger dog wasn’t that lucky-he is from a shelter,the lack of testosterone has already showing some negative effects in his body.Also they were both vaccinated only once but they don’t have any antibodies-I did blood tittering tests to confirm that on my older dog.I use Aajonus’ recommendation how to remove vaccines antibodies . So what about the cysts ? I would appreciate any additional comments on that topic. Thank you in advance for all your information and the knowledge you share with us, Ania.

      I can’t comment on an individual basis without much more detail, but vaccination (both personal and in the ancestors) can create problems, such as lumps, warts, cysts and tunours.
      Yes, sterilisation does have a huge impact on the health of an animal. While I am not a great advocate in favour of it, I am not totally against it. Homeopathic treatment can help deal with the problems associated with vaccines, sterilisation and any other health problem.

      I’ve got a one year old Aussie/Collie mix that from day one was on a primal diet and just adopted an estimated 2yr old Retriever/Lab mix that had developed food allergies most likely over the two months in the shelter or possibly all her life and that was why she was abandoned in a park. She has now developed these cysts and I’m starting the treatment tonight and will update.
