Growth between paws

Should I be worried? I hate taking him to the vet for small stuff only to have them say "he'll be fine in a couple days"

It looks like it could be a histicytoma, which is benign and will heal eventually on its own. It won't be fast, they take their time.

Nevertheless, I'd soak it in warm water and epsom salts 2-3 times a day, dry it thoroughly. Some Doberman people recommend and swear by Tinactin, the anti-fungal foot spray, for histiocytomas.

Thanks. Based on what you can see, do you think I should take him to the vet?

I would take him to the vet. There are many different types of lumps and some can be very bad. Better safe than sorry. Perhaps your vet can do a FNA or small biopsy to get a better idea if this is benign or something that should be removed as soon as possible.

Well, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to get it checked out just in case. Histiocytomas look very much like mast cell tumours, which are not benign so better safe than sorry.

Having seen a few histiocytomas myself, I probably wouldn't run to the vet personally if I thought one of my dogs had one. But I wouldn't tell you not to (especially based on pictures).

It could be an interdigital cyst. There are a variety of causes which generally involve some kind of inflammation which can lead to an infection.


PROVET HEALTHCARE INFORMATION - Interdigital Cysts

I'd check it out with a vet, just to be safe.

I would go to t he vet and get it checked. Tamora had a growth on her pad. It was removed. It could have gotten bigger and than it is harder to remove.

She had no issues with the procedure.

So we went to the vet today, he said he thought it was some sort of tumor, probably benign but said if I wanted to send it off to the pathologist to determine if it was benign, I said lets do it. I'd rather spend the extra $160 and know for sure its not cancer. When I went back to pick him up, the vet said he was very certain that it was just a wart, he said it was not below the skin at all and in his opinion it was a waste of money to send it to the lab. I agreed with him and were back home now. Thanks again for the advice.

I just went though something similar.. we were at a show, and when we came back from a pee break, his toe was bleeding. My breeder said it was a "toe wart" that had burst.. in my whole life, I had never heard of a toe wart.. but its an actual real thing! *L*
Still scabbed over and healing now..
