Little Pandora has had issues with her feet on and off since we had her and the vet has prescribed Malasab wash and Ilium cream. For the past couple of weeks she has had a head collar on and pretty much learned how to do everything except walk up the stairs. Her foot has been swollen around her nails and gets red and inflamed when she licks it all the time (hence the head collar). With the head collar on the skin goes back to its normal colour and her hair grows back, but the toes are still really swollen.
I am a bit reluctant to take her to the vet because I don't want to pay $80 to be told to keep doing what I am doing (Malasab wash twice a week on her foot and cream twice a day). I am just wondering if anyone else has had this with their dog and what they're doing about it. It doesn't seem to cause her any pain unless she is left to chew her foot, which she isn't.
Any ideas would be much appreciated because I would love to take that head collar off her!
