Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet Tech for 30+ years with interest in small animals and exotics. I just viewed the area that is sore and hard to see in the picture well. Since the foot is not sore, I would clip the hair away from the area, so it can be cleaned and medicated. Once the area can be seen better you can clean the area with Betadine Diluted with water to tea color. This will disinfect the area and help with the healing. The last step will be to apply some Neosporin to the sore area. I suggest the cleaning and Neosporin 3 times a day. If it does not look like it is healing, the a vet visit will be needed. The Vet can clean the area up, debrid it and give an Antibotic to aid with healing. Please let me know if you need clarification. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to Rate my service 5 stars.
