    Default Interdigital Furunculosis

    Has anyone here had first hand experience with a dog that had interdigital furunculosis (or sometimes incorrectly referred to as interdigital cysts)?

    Have been reading info online but there doesn't seem to be any one cause or any one treatment!

    Thanks!

    freind of mine just had an experience with what she thinks was an interdigit cyst. She ignored it for a few days and it disappeared.

    Most seem to get better with time, steroids, and antibiotics

    I had a Bulldog that used to get them. Some time after she had died, I ran across some information on one of the Bulldog forums about using vinegar douche on their feet. Apparently it helps balance the ph or some such thing.

    Here's some info I ran across doing a google since it's been 30+ years since I had her.

    (Look in the comments for the douche bit.)
