***graphic pics with blood***I knew it would be hard since I pass out at the sight of blood but I really thought I could do this. I can't. My easter egger has bumblefoot on both feet. One is grade 5 probably. Soaked in Epsom salt two days ago but didn't have scalpel to do anything other than pick one scab off. Actually had two on the bad foot. Here are the pics. I got one scab off and nearly passed out before I could continue. (Fell to floor shaking, covered in sweat, threw up) what do I do now? I didn't even touch the foot that has the black scab in the middle of it. I got antibiotic in the hole and bandaged back up but I can't imagine this will heal it. I felt like maybe the entire bottom of the foot should be removed but that's a lot!!! My understanding is foot soaks aren't really going to cure such a bad bumblefoot infection .
