Hen has got Bumblefoot! Help!

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by Phoenix Chicken, Jul 24, 2013.

  1. My two leghorn girls both have 2 bumblefoot swellings on their feet. [​IMG]Each one has a medium sized one and a small one. All are on the toes. I want to get them treated as quickly as possible, so I was wondering if you would be willing to share past experiences, tips tricks or old wives tales. All are welcome.

    I heard somewhere that you can dunk their feet in ice water and it stops it from growing. Is this true? I have been on the computer so long already, I think my eyes are sick! [​IMG]Therefore, I will post pictures ASAP. Thank you in advance.
     

  2. Thank for showing me that. Is there any other way to treat Bumblefoot though? [​IMG]

    not that I know that's the website I used and it worked great or just try soaking the foot in Epsom salt and water
     
  4. Ok I will try the saoking. The infections are not so bad, that I have to do surgery, but I don't want it to grow...
