Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

What state do you live in?

How swollen is that foot?

Is there any possibility of injury at all?

Have you checked between the pads and at the bottom to see if there's anything unusual?

Other than the sore foot, how is he acting?

How much does Bailey weigh?

How much baby aspirin are you giving?
