    On Christmas Eve I treated a hen for bumblefoot. Wrapped and soaked and treated until bottom of foot healed. She was fine until tonight. I noticed a 'plug' coming out of the top of her foot. I will retreat in the morning but about a month ago someone said that they used an ointment for a case of bumblefoot but I can't find the post. The person said that the ointment was applied and the foot bandaged and the infection went away.

    Does anyone remember this so I can obtain what my hen needs to make this go away once and for all?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    They always do this to me on weekends or holidays. UUGGHH
