    [​IMG][​IMG]I just noticed that my buff orpington has a swollen foot. I looked at the bottom of the foot and noticed a dark spot on the pad of it.
    from past reading I'm sure it's bumble foot. She is showing no sign of illness and continues to eat, drink and walks fine. I wonder if this situation will remendy itself on it's own or do I have to lance it seperate her and ect............ Again, she is not showing any signs of distress? thank-you rockmasters momma:

    you could try epsom salt soaks, I have read that soaks can help, but I wouldn't let it go for long it is an infection and thats not so good.

    So sorry, but it will not correct itself. You will have to intervene. There are plenty of informative posts on here to walk you through it. Good luck..
