Did she biopsy it Christie? So you know exactly what you are dealing with? There's a big difference between an interdigital cyst and a cancerous tumor. I sure hope the herbs help! The soaks should be beneficial as well. Keep us posted!

No to biopsy it we would have to knock her out, between the pain and her hyperness. She only did the bloodwork just to see what that might show. I agree huge difference between the two but with treating it with herbs nothing will hurt her so she is treating for the worse and hoping for the best.

Besides falling over laughing at the thought of soaking Sadie's foot, Kim is waiting for bloodwork too. She is interested to see if it will go down with the soaks as that will prove it is not cancer if it does.

GOOD NEWS:

Sadie's Blood work came back PERFECT! She has always shown low thyroid but she has no symptoms of a low thyroid dog so we are still going to ignore that.

They did do a urinalysis (she gave them a free sample) and she does have a UTI. Dr. Grasso is putting her on 3 weeks of Cephalexin (and a pro biotic) to clear that up, also will help with her nasty teeth, and if any infection is in her foot it will knock it out too. It feels very strange for Dr. Grasso to use a traditional antibiotic. She had a fit when another doctor in their practice put Huly on one (she was out that day and Huly was pretty sick) but she feels Sadie needs one and this is why I started going to her as she can prescribe both holistic and traditional. Also we are putting her on a higher dosage of cranberry. I normally give her one when I see an issue coming on etc but this time she has not shown any times so we are going to add it permanently.

So for right now we are building her immune system and anti-cancer fighting properties with herbs, treating an infection with antibiotics, increasing cranberry, and foot soaking!

It's good that the bloodwork was good and the UTI was found. I hope the treatment works on her paw, please keep us updated.

Christie, you are an awesome mom, it sounds like you are taking great care of
your girl. I wish for her poor little foot to heal asap, and I'm sending both of you
well wishes and positive vibes. Hang in there, you're doing great. Benji had
similar issues with two of his paws last winter, antibiotics internally and as an
ointment, soaking, and wiping his paws dry after every snowy walk resulted in
healing. It was quite the battle considering it happened in winter, but we made
it. I wish you guys success too.
