Bumblefoot and drawing salve? - Page 2

post #11 of 15

This is very interesting.  It would certainly be far easier for the chicken keeper than surgery (especially when there are multiple birds with infections), and far less stressful for the birds.  I will definitely pick some up at the drug store to have on hand.  Thank you for the suggestion!

The only Ichthammol I found was in "Prid". It's in an orange container. Will that work? I thought Prid is a drawing salve.

The only drawing salve I know of is Boil Ease, it is available at Wal-mart.  Would something like that work?

I did find Prid, it was at Wal-mart.  It was on the shelves near the bandages.  I've been putting it on Meggie's foot every other day when I redo the soak and re-bandage.

 

Anyone know how long we should try this, it still doesn't seem to bother her, before we get this cut out?  (We don't normally fret over vet bills but we just had a $1200 bill for a dog we ended up having to put down).
