Folks, Just thought I'd post something I am attempting and will keep you informed of the progress. Did surgery on obvious bumblefoot on one of my hen's feet. Successful but very traumatic. The other foot was terribly swollen but no obvious scab or spot. Had been soaking her in epsom salts but no real obvious results on that second foot. Last night I remembered something I used to rid myself of an abscessed tooth. Bentonite clay. It is a really great drawing out agent. I looked up Bentonite clay on the internet to be sure if she ate any of her bandages that it would not hurt her. Apparently they sometimes use Bentonite clay as a binder in some poultry feed. So safe there. I soaked gauze in wet bentonite clay mixture and wrapped up her foot very well. Then taped it over with Vet tape/Sport's wrap. That was at 11:30 last night. This morning she was still holding that foot up but also standing on it more often and definitely has her appetite back. I re-wrapped the foot again this morning with the Bentonite Clay gauze and she is more comfortable again. No obvious signs yet that it has diminished the swelling, but again -- this is only the second treatment. I will keep you posted as to how this works. Prayers this works folks --- I'm at my wits end and cannot afford a vet bill.
