My 6 year old English bulldogs has a sore on the side of her

Customer Question

My 6 year old English bulldogs has a sore on the side of her back paw's toe. Right next to the pad. It is a bit swollen and it is tender because she is favoring it. Not sure if I should take her to vet or treat it myself.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the bulldog's name?
Customer: Paige
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Paige?
Customer: No other health issues.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Do you have a picture to share of it?
2) Is she licking?
3) Is it oozing?
