by Cathy
(Worcestershire)

My two year old springer has a sore paw which she lick constantly some pus has come out but she is still licking


From Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com

She may have got a seed in her foot, the best bet is to see the vet to be sure she hasn't got an abcess that could become worse

Histocytoma
by: Anonymous

My springer had what I thought to be an abcess, turned out it was a Histocytoma. These are common tumors found in dogs usually under 2 years old. I took her to the vets and they removed it after I spent around £300.00.She's fine now, but it is always best to get them checked out by a vet. Hope your springers okay.

Sore paws
by: June

My springer Monty is going through the same thing at the moment, must be the time of year. I took him to the vets as it was turning into an abscess, the vet told me to bathe it in warm salt water 3 or 4 times a day & to gently squeeze it while under water. It seems to be doing the trick, I had him back at the vets this morning for a check & he was really pleased with the way it is healing.

P.S.

P.S. it cost me over £200, luckily I am insured, but I dry his feet with a towel now and check them after every walk, even if it is totally dry out

my boy got the tiniest thorn in his foot, it caused an abscess, had to be drained by the vet under sedation and bandaged to keep clean (bandage lasted one day! he didn't think he looked good with one blue leg)

Sore paw

Sounds like a grass seed - my girl has had several. I have become very adept at whipping them out with a pair of tweezers once she starts worrying her foot. If it is too embedded, use a drawing agent like Magnoplasm or a mixture of Velvet soap and sugar.....

Spaniel with sore paw
by: Anonymous

My 17 month old spaniel had the same problem a few weeks back - he had a grass seed in his foot which the vet removed under a mild seditive. Now all healed nicely.
If you can see puncture wounds and the wound isn't healing I would get it checked as grass seeds can continue to move up the leg resulting in more invasive surgery.
We were lucky - my vet found it very quickly.
Good luck.
