Bump in between toes

I noticed a bump in between my Dobermans toes it looks like a wart it is hard and round. It is a little scabby on the outside of it. Has anyone else had this problem arise? Is this something I should be concerned about?

Could be an interdigital cyst?

You could try soaking the foot in some Epson salt and applying some Manuka honey to see if it helps.

Best to have your vet look at that.

Bumps around the nail bed and between the toes can have lots of causes--some are minor; some are not. I would head to a vet.

Thank you for the update. I love a good OTC fix for any common canine medical problem. I've heard that this product is quite effective in treating ringworm (tinea corpsis).

There's no guarantee that you can accurately cure that yourself as someone who has expertise in diagnosing it is required to know what it is and to treat it properly. The best thing to do is to visit his vet.

You would be surprised. It is not uncommon for a long time Doberman owner to have more hands on knowledge with respect to simple ailments specific to the breed to have intrinsic insight, not necessarily immediately obvious to the average DVM. Now, that being said, I would never eschew a qualified vet's opinion on a serious matter. In fact, my "go to" comment is: "That's a vet visit". Still.... oftentimes, a little common sense can prevail.

Perhaps, I am more fortunate than most. My vet is family and a 24/7 phone call away.

Indeed, it would be more convenient if you'll do first aid and treat a common ailment without resorting to the vet (if you know what you're doing). Like what you said, most long time doberman owners have hands on knowledge about these common ailments. But in my case, I'm always afraid to take the risks so I always resort to people who have expertise. This forum, for example, is one of the information source I always go to in case there's a problem that can be solved without going to the vet.

Glad StellaBlueDobie's dobe doing great with the progress.

@ Caleb

LOL. Good call. I rarely comment on a dogs nails, as I would be a hypocrite. Although the nails get trimmed weekly, I leave them quite a bit longer than the average "Dremel-holic" (sorry) would. I am still old school w/ by-pass clippers and a bottle of styptic, if necessary.

I have a nice variable speed Dremel tool, but it is so much easier to just grab the clippers and a hand full of treats. One minute and done.

But then... I'm the guy who never bathes his dogs! LOL
