My 10 month old Welsumer had a case of bumblefoot about a month ago- we check the flock often, so we caught it in its early stage. The pad of the foot was slightly raised, with a black scab over the pad of the foot. "Mom, does Wellie have a callus?" was the first indication. I performed surgery on the foot, cutting away the black scab, but there was no cheesy pus or a corn-like "bumble" that I could feel. We bandaged and put triple antibiotic ointment on the area for a week. I checked the foot again today, and it seems that the bumblefoot is back- there is a slight pinkness on the bottom of the foot, and the appearance of a small black spot. What should I do next? Wait until the bumblefoot gets bad enough that there is actually pus to clear out after removing the scab? If I try cutting away the scab again (it looks like a black spot on the foot right now, about 2 mm in diameter) I will prob end up in the same situation, where the infection appears to be deeper in and not bad enough to cause pus build-up? Chickmunk the Welsumer is laying, eating, and acting totally normal, no limping at all. It does not look like the foot is bothering her at all. Any advice would be appreciated.
