The modern terminology is MDT.  In the Civil War the south had fewer doctors, but less gangrene due to the flies.  Undecided

Grandma had a cure for the common cold. Seep an onion in a jar of home brew. Drink the liquid and you will wake up 36 hours later feeling better.

Knowing how to make a bread poltus (not sure how that is spelt) is something I learned from my Mom. Interesting direction this took might make a good thread.

Aged cures of the ages for the aged! LOL!

But seriously might be some good reading. I am very used to fish antibiotics even though I've never had an aquarium.
Bread poltus probably saved me from getting an infection a few times
I've used ants as surgical staples and leaches for ensuring blood movement for a semi-detached appendage. Had chewing tobacco stuffed into a cut.

Bush or old wives cures are sometimes better than nothing.

um... I don't think Gary and crew want any form of medical liability from the suggested use of maggots....

Back to the topic..
She is doing slightly better.. occasionally touching foot to floor.. still wearing fashionable sock.

Still improving .. Will check with vet soon and see if follow up is warranted.

So happy to hear that. Dogs are stronger than humans. They recover better from bumps and bruises. Looking forward to throwing a ball for the yotes

Maybe it was just some kind of localized irritation like an insect sting or something, and she kept licking at it enough to irritate it. **fingers crossed**

still improving. dang- feet get used a lot..
She has graduated to a few hours in the earlies, while I absorb coffee and such.. without her sock on.
Letting the area that retains the sock relax a bit.. her furs are showing a little wear.. lol

And GS- the yotes are looking forward to their morning coffee.. Wink and ball throwing.

Just in case y'all were wondering..

several weeks of sockfooting, and she is doing great..
just needed to give it a chance to heal up.

Apparently she cut her foot, alongside the pad-middle toe somehow..

Once it healed enough to see what was going on.. it was fairly obvious.
