just started about 2 days ago and no other signs

Can you send me a photo of the paws?

Paul

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Okay

There is bacterial infection on the one paw (second photo)

Lets soak the affected paws in epsom salts 2-3 times daily for 4-5 days time

For five to ten minutes

This is anti-bacterial and anti-itch

Update me tomorrow night

Okay?

Paul
