    I have a golden comet and she has this brown spot on the bottom of her foot. It is not a scab, and no swelling. I am going to keep an eye on it, especially since it is very wet here right now. But I was wondering if it would hurt to wash it, dry it, out neosporin on it, and wrap it for a day or two?

    That sounds like a good idea. Send her to the spa by soaking her feet in some epsom salt about 10-15 minutes, dry them off and take a good look. If there is a scab, there is plenty of instructions on this board to follow. If not, keep a close watch.
