Default Bulge between toes?

We just noticed a couple days ago a large bulge between two of Dozer's toes. I know it's new since late August, which is when I trimmed his nails last, but I can't say for sure when it appeared. It doesn't appear to bother him, he lets me touch it and apply light pressure. It's soft/squishy, not red, no sign of a bite or anything. I'm going to find a vet today (just relocated) but I thought I'd ask the experts first! I took a picture but my camera isn't uploading for some reason. I'll be back with a picture soon.

Any ideas?

I honestly dont know, but I have seen these a lot with dogs that I groom. Usually the dogs with funky skin and allergies seem to have it. but i really have no idea what it is, or why its there.

Let us know what the vet says! Id love to know

This occurred after you trimmed his nails? Maybe you trimmed on the quick that's why it got inflamed. Check his nails if you accidentally damaged the quick. Or if you remember him in pain while trimming his nails.

It isn't from his having his nails trimmed. He hasn't had them trimmed since August, and I know he did have this as late as Sept. 4th. I never trim to the quick or even close.

Here's a pic:

With the exception to you saying this doesn't seem painful, it sorta looks, from your photos, to be an interdigital cyst.

I had one of my Collies, several years ago get this.

Here is a photo of one on a bulldog.

yup, the bulldogs! The bulldogs that come in for baths have those. I have seen them in labs too.

Ohnoz!!!! That's looks EXACTLY like what he has! I don't like the sound of it...long term antibiotics and multiple infections?? Poor guy

I was hoping for something more benign....off to search for a vet now.

Pepper had one of those. It took a steroid injection to make it go away.
