Hi all. I have a 6yo Olde English named Stella. This year she started getting interdigital cysts on her feet and severely red itchy skin. Her behavior indicates that she just does not feel well. She has been to the vet on multiple occasions, and the treatments have not helped. At this point I am soaking her feet in warm Epsom salt water 20 minutes a day and putting salve on her feet with dog shoes so she doesn't lock it off. The put her on Science Diet Z/D and had her on antibiotics and steroids. When the meds stopped or I stop the soaking everything comes back.
Any suggestions? I just want her to feel better.

Unfortunately, interdigital cysts are a lifelong issue. Steroids can help for a while to reduce inflammation. Keep those paw clean, use some antiseptic. Try using a topical cream that contains steroids. Change food. There can be an allergic factor behind this.
