Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Have you looked in to financial aid options?

If the foxtail remains in his paw, the antibiotics and soaks will help but won't completely solve the issue.
