    The pad of the foot underneath my pekin's middle toe nails (both feet the same) are swollen and the ends are dark and callused. It has been this way for over a month now. We tried cleaning and neosporin but it still hasn't gone away and it is still inflamed. It doesn't seem to be bumblefoot because it's in a weird location and it's on both feet, one a little more swollen than the other.

    I tried pulling off the callused dark area and it did come off (didn't seem to bother her)...but eventually it came back. It's so weird and I haven't found anything info on it. She does not seem to be in pain from it, but she may just be hiding it well.

    Has anyone even seen this? Any suggestions on care?

    Please help!!
