Two of our girls have what we think is bumblefoot. There is the black dot and very little swelling. One of our girls has it on both feet and the one in the picture only has it on the one foot. My fiance and I have been reading all evening and he has been watching videos on doing the "surgery" to get rid of it. Is this bad enough to need the surgery? Is this actually bumblefoot (maybe there is no swelling because we caught it early?)? I am going to go out tomorrow and get the needed supplies for the surgery. I am planning on getting three of everything. I do not want to reuse the tweezers from one foot to another foot even on the same bird. I will be getting tweezers, non-medicated neosporin, non-stick gauze pads, vet tape, rubbing alcohol and peroxide. Is there anything else that I should be getting that I am forgetting???? We will be placing all of the girls in the coop and taking out one at a time, into the run, where we will have a little table set up with all the equipment and tools. Once we finish we will put everyone back in the coop and clean up the run good so that there is nothing nasty on the ground. Is it okay to do it in the run on top of a table?? Our thinking was that would be the least stressful on the girls. They will be in familiar surroundings, and it will hopefully be quiet. Inside the house we have a cat and two dogs, and one of the dogs is a barker.....a lot. Is there any other information that anyone has that may help make this process easier on our girls??? TYIA!!
