Hi Everyone, I took in this hen maybe two springs ago. She came to me with a large Bumblefoot on one of her toes which I immediately started working on. I did get a lot of stuff out of it, but it was still a large swollen toe. It did heal then came back again this summer. I've been working on and off all summer with it. The Vetericin worked in the beginning, now it wasn't working any longer, so I changed to Penicilllin and more warm soaks with Epsom Salt. I've treated her with the Penicillin for 7 days now and it is still swollen and open sore. This is my routine, I soak her foot twice a day, then rebandage it up using Neosporin, a drop of honey, and a squirt of Vetericin. Wrapping it in vet wrap real good. She stays in a clean cage with hay. I have let her out a couple times for a short while to visit with the other girls and take a dirt bath. The swelling has gone down from where we were, but it still has a large bump on the toe and of course the hole where I try and squeeze any of the infection out of. So should I keep her on the Penicillin longer, change to another medication? Or stop altogether. Any suggestions or help would be so appreciated. She is a sweet Barred Rock, about 21/2-3 years old I think. Good layer and healthy otherwise. I really need to get this under control because the cold weather will be here and it is so much to bring her all the way up to the house and do the soaks and wrapping each day. Plus I'm sure she has had enough about now. Thank you all for being there for our questions all the time. A great forum for us. Sandy This is a picture of it now and the second picture is 8 days ago. I do think it has gone down some even thought the picture looks worse. The blue around the first picture is from Bluecoat or whatever I used for a few days in the beginning. Nasty, messy stuff. I think I had more on me than her.
