I have a hen whose foot pad is swollen along with the webbing between her toes. We soaked her foot, drained pus from between her middle and right toe, and applied antibiotic cream. I can't feel anything other that the swelling and there are no scabs other than from the small incision we made. This is day 3. I can't get a picture as I my husband and I are working opposite shifts, I can only say that it looks like many of the bumble foot pics on-line minus the scab. I hesitate to cut her foot open as I don't know where to be looking. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Bumblefoot or something else?

I'm sorry to hear that.
I'm not an expert, but I hope these links help.
Thank you so much for the links! I was unable to find the product locally so I placed an order on-line and it should be here early next week. Luckily she is not limping despite the swelling and doesn't seem to be in pain. I sure hope it works. Thanks again.
