as some of you may well remember poor Floo developed a bad swelling on his foot which I treated with magnesium sulphate, which worked brilliantly, well its back further up his leg this time, so dont know if its a left over from before or a fresh swelling, never mind the M S has come back out and been slapped on thick on the swelling and baytril syringed in his delicate little mouth NOT, fingers crossed it works fine again,

Aw poor Floo glad he and his foot is feeling better. Any ideas what it was? Bumble foot or just an infected pad?

he had an infection a few months ago I posted on here that I was worried he would lose his foot like my darling Bear did, so I found some magnesium sulphate you might remember as a child when you had a splinter or some thing in your hand etc, well it worked brilliantly it draws the pus out and heals it up, think it was that came back again, but its healed wonderfully i used melanin pads with the MS on it then wrapped the white plaster on a roll ( that you can rip) round it on his foot he did keep it on long enough for the MS to do its job, so am delighted and suggest you all buy MS for your medical box, my vets also recomend it and supply it now because of my great result with it.
