Okay so please go easy on me, this is my first BF experience and it was really ugly. So Lady Gaga (LG) has been limping but had no sore so I thought she twisted her foot. Yesterday I noticed almost overnight her foot had swelled up very large, textbook size and look of any googled image of bumblefoot. As I wasn't able to catch her until this morning while she was still a little sleepy, it got bigger and hotter overnight. So I researched and youtubed and so on, and decided I should drain it at the very least. There is/was no scab, but it was hot to the touch and so was she. I felt no kernel either. So tonight I soaked it in Epsom salted water, prepared a surgical station with sterile plastic, scissors, tweezers, a blade, gauze, wrap and all the wipes and cream suggested and cut an "x". Id be lying if I didn't say I'm terrified I made it worse. Basically after digging around, squeezing and poking the poor girl, while my husband held her in a towel, and ended up with a few chunks of messy fleshy white stuff and some black and white pus pockets coming out. Unfortunately my cuts were less than tidy and I just couldn't dig in her foot any longer the poor thing. I cleaned it, packed it with antifungal/antibiotic ointment and wrapper her like the videos show. I also gave her a water soluable antibiotic in her drinker for good measure. She is eating and drinking and moving around which thrills me, but I'm so afraid I destroyed her foot and didn't get it all anyway. Any advice? I'm a tough woman but this really got to me, hurting my sweet girl.
