Default Cricket's poor hurty paw

I just took off Cricket's bandage wrap a little bit ago. It looks a lot better, but still not great.

She is still getting the benedryl since we just started that a couple days ago and I'm putting coconut oil on it for now and keeping a close eye on it.

I have a feeling we may have to make a vet trip if it doesn't look a whole lot better in a couple days. I have to wait to get paid to take her though but thank goodness I should be getting paid on Tuesday or Wednesday I think.

I'm still keeping the elizabethan collar on her to keep her from doing any further damage.

Any advice on anything I can try in the meantime that I haven't thought to try?

Here are some pics I took today.







Also... Should I just let it breathe now or should it stay wrapped up to keep dirt and bacteria away?

EEEK.... hate to say, that would warrant a vet trip ASAP in my opinion.

Is there a way to keep it protected but not so bandaged? I'd think that needs to breathe a bit, it's pretty goopy.

I definitely think it needs to breath that looks pretty bad!

I guess when you first talked about it I thought you meant like the pad of her foot and not the whole top :O

I'd definitely take that to the vet right away that looks really bad.

I could maybe try a clean sock? That would keep it protected but not so tightly bandaged. I can't afford to take her to the vet just yet. Usually I can no problem but of course we would be hurting a little this month

I have $100. The exam fee alone is $50. I did mention to Josh that I want to take her into the vet and he made a frustrated face. I could see if my boss would be willing to pay for it and take the money out of my paycheck though. She has funds for vet visits for clients dogs just in case.

I really wouldn't want anything on it with it looking that oozy. Is there anyway to keep her off chewing it and inside for a while to give it time to fully air out/breath?

She has an elizabethan collar to keep her from chewing it. She is only going outside right now to go potty and then is stuck in the crate because I don't want her wandering around getting stuff on her paw that could irritate it more. Ugh this is so frustrating. :/

That almost looks burn-like to me! You sure she didn't have access to any caustic chemicals accidentally?

As far as I know she didn't. I really hope not. I had originally thought maybe the apartment complex sprayed the grass. I can contact them tomorrow and ask.
