My hen Sylvia has bad bumblefoot and I decided to try and take care of it myself. I cleaned her foot off and got everything ready and then I couldn't cut her with the scalpel without throwing up and passing out. So my husband did the cut between her toes and it bled more than I expected and I managed to get out a corn sized piece of that white crap but couldn't work any of the stuff from the bottom of her foot through the hole between her toes. So again, I turned away and my husband cut the bottom of her food which bled considerably. She's crying every time I squeeze her foot so I had him cut yet anoter part so she has a V on her foot and I STILL can't get the stuff out!!! I feel like crap, I hurt my poor Sylvia and for nothing! What am I doing wrong? I think I'll have to end up bringing her in for surgery to get it out because I can't keep digging while she's trying to pull and away and she's in obvious pain. How do I get this stuff out quickly???
