Thanks in advance.
Anyway, Patch went into the vet today and was discovered to have inflamed soles on both back feet as well as her left front paw.
Our vet (who's very good by the way) didn't prescribe any topical ointments but did give her a shot of anti-inflammatory and suggested a change of bedding.
For the time being, Patch's pad is layered with soft cotton cloths.
I'd be curious to hear of any other owner's experiences with this affliction. New to us. Any suggestiopns for treatment & preferable bedding would be most welcome.
Thanks for your replies!
I use fleece for my girls and it's been working out great. Before that, it was carefresh and aspen shavings. I prefer the fleece.
Patch's heart seems to be fine, according to the vet. She's about 1 1/2 years old now and prior to the old t-shirts (cloths) she was bedding on pine.
The grade of the pine might've been the problem. On the surface it seemed like any other pine bedding we've used since we got her but last change I noticed a lot of wood chips, as opposed to shavings, as well as some sharp splinters.
We gave her Kale to eat recently (never having done so before) and I had wondered if there was an allergic reaction by her sore pink feet.
It's a mystery but the cloths seems to be improving things.
We'll certainly buy a roll of fleece. Especially after seeing that picture in the link!
