    My Silver Laced Wyndotte,Lacey, has been battling Bumblefoot for well over 1 month now. I performed the surgery and removed the "bumble." However, her toes remain severely swollen with Infection. She is obviously in pain. I have started treating her with Denagard for the infection. I'm also giving her a small dose of baby aspirin for the pain. Does anyone have any other suggestions or ideas for help in this matter? Different treatments that have been successful for you? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
