Hello again Katherine,Sorry to hear Lilly has a problem, however I have worked out a reply for you below.1. Wrapping the paw and using magnesium sulphate paste certainly is not going to any harm, but if there is any degree of infection in the foot or an embedded foreign body of any kind no matter how small then in my experience prescription drugs such as antibiotics are almost certainly going to be needed. If things do not improve it may be best to have your vet take a look.
