The Poor Paw
He then ATTACKED me with hardware - yikes can you believe it!!!!! Actually he took a dremmel to the callous and smoothed it down - much the way the hoomans take a pumice stone to rough skin. He was surprised how well I just stood there while he did it - until Mom told him that she uses uses a dremmel to do my nails so I am use to it.
I have some antibiotic ointment for the ulcer and some pain meds. He told Mom she needs to soak my foot for about 5 minutes a day to soften it and then use either the dremmel or a pumice stone on the callous and just take a little bit off each day. REALLY MOM! - get my foot wet - you are kidding right - wet means water and you KNOW how I hate water!!!!
He did say if it doesn't get better that they might have to try to remove the callous but that would be the last resort as it would mean removing about a third of my pad. We will give my new 'beauty' regime a go and see what happens.
As for my toes spreading - he says that is "weird" It hasn't happened on any of my other feet and he thinks it might be some form of arthritis that is causing the bones to grow funny. The X-rays showed something similar to a human rheumatoid type arthritis happening in the joints of my toes.
