Hello, I know there are hundreds of bumblefoot threads already and I've read through most but I just want to make sure.... I'm pretty sure my girl has it but I wonder... isn't the scab/spot going to be hard ? Her toe is swollen and has the stereotypical "black spot" but it's firm, not hard. Is that normal? Or did we catch it early? We've soaked in epsom salt and sprayed Veterycin (sp?) and wrapped it after 3 days no real noticeable difference. I worry that if we cut into it to early it will do more damage. What do you think?
