My chicken has bumblefoot and the vet estimate is $600 - Page 2

Spraying with Vetericyn is never a bad idea too. smile.png

And if it helps anyone, here's a great post on bumblefoot (and surgery too): http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/07/bumblefoot-causes-treatment-warning.html

Hope that helps!

That one is kind of large.  I think you are going to have to remove it.  It is very similar in size to the one I posted pictures of on page 1.  I think after a few soakings and a couple of poultices it should lift off easy enough without a bunch of cutting and digging.

I would cull her and buy a new chicken before paying 600$
