I have a 5 yr old khaki hen with a bumble that has grown

Customer Question

Hi. I have a 5 yr old khaki Campbell hen with a bumble that has grown even larger over the last week. either the name of a relatively local vet that knows what a bumble is...or instructions on how to get rid of it. I have had her soaking in warm Epsom salts several times a day...bandaging with triple antibiotic and silver sulfadiazine. What's next?

Hello, I'm Dr.Bob. I apologize for the length of time this reply has taken to get back to you. There aren't many poultry knowledgeable veterinarians online, and I've been off for the evening. I'm sorry to read of George's condition.

How long has the bumble (bumblefoot, I presume) been present?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I've actually been able to find a local vet that treats hopefully all is taken care of.
