We recently mentioned that it looks as if Lady’s front left foot was beginning to experience a blowout – which is when an internal abscess comes through the surface of the skin.
Once we saw the symptoms begin, we changed her treatment regimen to focus on this issue instead of her general foot issues. It seems to be working – the area looks to be drying out, and it isn’t apparent that it’s causing her significant pain. She is continuing to move around quickly and comfortably and not favoring that foot in any way. We wouldn’t consider it remotely healed, but we are pleased about what it is doing at this point. We see good signs that things are moving in the right direction.
Blowouts will likely be a cyclical issue for her, but we are tracking what works this time, with the hope these methods may also work in the future.
