Buddy Has A Sore Paw

Buddy has had a sore paw. It is an allergic thing, he gets it from time to time. It seems to be a bulldog thing, many of them seem to get it.

It is the time he gets really grumpy, as his paw swells and swells, and he gets really unhappy. If we touch it, he snarls and growls. He wouldn't bite, although it is a little disconcerting, he is just telling us that it really hurts.

We bath it twice daily, with medicated shampoo. If one of us tries it, he growls and complains, but if it is two of us holding him and bathing the paw, he becomes compliant and he doesn't complain very much.

It only lasts for a few days, the angry Buddy, the the swelling pops, and he doesn't care any more about it.
