    Hi, is the dog a Bullterrier?
    The reason I ask is because they do tend to suffer from dermoid cysts which occur inbetween the toes. One of my BT's suffered from them and they swell up similar to your dog in the picture. In the end they burst and leak fluid.
    Might be worth mentioning to your vet as it could save you the fortune of an op if they can treat it with meds.
    Best of luck.

    Ahh, its horrible to see them in pain. Thats how my dogs went but it did burst in the end. It got to the point where it was so painful she wouldnt even atempt to put her paw to the ground.

    Probably something else then. Thought it was worth a mention tho as I know what vets can be like - if you know what I mean!
