    I feel like I'm going crazy here. Nibbles' bumblefoot has started acting up again. Does anyone know of a way to help keep chronic bumblefoot away? He's been on baytril so much I'm afraid it's not helping anymore. He's currently getting his feet soaked in Epsom salt, de-colorized iodine put on, and wrapped. Anything else I can do?

    How long has it been since he's had it? It can take a very long time to heal.

    Have you removed the lesions? Photos are always helpful.
