Marshfoot at Stillwater

Postby Albifrons » Sun Nov 18, 2012 11:21 am

Just a heads up of marshfoot at Stillwater NWR. Was on South Nutgrass one recent evening. Packed up at dark. By time back to Fallon, my dogs foot was huge. Got it taken care of, but keep it in mind.

Yes depending on the type of bacteria it can be a pretty bad deal for the dog. Hope your buddy heals quickly.

yes my girl got it yesterday! Took her to the vet and got her on meds. Does not look to be a terrible case like i have heard of. But not fun for sure. Check you dogs feet.

She is doing OK. It had to get lanced and now stay open to let it drain. Plenty of antibiotics. Hers was a clostridium, which in essence is a botulism. Only way to prevent it is not to go in either Carson Lake or Stillwater. She probably averages 100 days in Lahontan Valley marshes a year and has not gotten it before in her 6 years.

they make a bad @ss booty with a vibram sole that I had to get for my dog when she got a good pad blister. Im sure they would do the trick in preventing the reeds from puncturing the foot......aint cheap but they worked for what I needed.
