Her foot has been airing out all day and I just shaved off around the area. It's still inflamed, but it actually looks better than yesterday. One of my coworkers said she thinks she has some leftover antibiotics from one of her foster dogs. She is going to look for it and I just want to double check with my vet to see if that antibiotic would work and what the proper dosage would be for her. She still is obsessing over wanting to try to bite at her paws anytime I take her elizabethan collar off temporarily for walks. She refuses to potty with it on though for some reason but it goes right back on when we get inside.

Updated pics... Ignore her toenails... They really need to be clipped

Antibiotics don't have a long shelf life, at all. Especially after they've been mixed.

ie: Amoxicillin has a 14 day shelf life once mixed. And that's even pushing it.

It's still pretty bad looking it looks really swollen *could just be the pics* but at least it isn't as oozy looking as it was.

I would shave just a little higher up the front of the paw based on those pics (I try to shave enough that I can see a good portion of clear margins all the way around). The amount of swelling right now probably has a lot to do with the irritation from shaving and should hopefully go down soon once she's completely kept away from licking and biting at it and so long as it's dry.

As for antibiotics: http://www.terrierman.com/antibiotics.htm

Baby powder/unmedicated body powder is amazing for drying out between gooey toes.

Definitely would try an epsom salt soak and if you can, follow it up with some lavender eo while you are waiting to get to the vet

lol, this! Her nails look so much better than my dog's!

Does she get any chance at all to lick it when she's got the collar off, or do you have control of her head in some way?

Did she have a grass/grass flea allergy when she was younger? I wonder if it's manifesting itself in a different way, now.
