One of my girls is dealing with bumblefoot on both feet. I went to do the surgery, and one went well. I cut the scab off and squeezed out the pus, etc. However, when I got to the other bumblefoot, I cut off the scab, but it seemed to only be skin deep and did not leave her foot open like the other one. I got all of the scab, but it did not penetrate into her foot, so no blood or pus. I wasn't sure what to do and didn't want to needlessly hurt her, so I just left it at that and bandaged it with Vetericyn VF. Question is, do I need to go deeper and cut into the foot? I did a lot of research and was under the impression that the removal of the scab would open the foot for necessary cleaning? Also, is it better to cut out a "plug" or more of like a slit or X shape to clean out the foot?
