Interdigital Cysts in Dogs

 

Overview

Many dog breeds including Chinese Shar-Pei’sLabrador Retrievers and English Bulldogs are predisposed to bacterial interdigital furunculosis because of the short bristly hairs located on the webbing between the toes, prominent interdigital webbing, or both.

 

Treatments

These cysts are treated with topical treatments, antibiotics and in extreme cases could require surgery to remove the cysts. Veterinary surgery can cost thousands of dollars. Make sure you can afford treatment when your dog needs it the most.
