Epsom Salt ratio?

Shannon has some kind of cut/swelling/inflammation where her nail meats the skin.

Am planning on contacting our vet tomorrow but thought about soaking her foot in some epsom salts to clean it out.

10 minutes seems to be the suggestion and to make sure the salts dissolve.

Ive searched here and found 1/4 teaspoon salt to 1 cup of warm water. But everything I've found online states 1/2 cup salt to 1 gallon. And by my bad math skills that equates to 1 1/2 teaspoons per cup of water. Thats a big difference.

Any thoughts or guidance? Thanks.

I never measure the salt I just dump it in and usually its in the bath tub and easier to soak all feet instead of one, probably about 1 cup of salts.
