My nine-year-old African gander has developed bumblefoot. It's not a large one yet, but I don't want to let it fester. I'm trying to decide whether it would be better to try injecting penicillin into the boil, or attempting to remove it. The boil is on the side of the footpad instead of the bottom - it could be gently pulled aside and snipped - but I am concerned about being able to keep such a surgical opening clean while it heals. Has anyone successfully treated their geese with injection, and if you have, did penicillin work or did you combine it with another antibiotic? Thanks for any insights.
