Sores on Boston Terrier's feet
Max is a 10 year old BT with a history of skin allergies.  He's been on allergy shots for several years with moderate success.  In the past, his belly and legs have broken out in a near bloody rash that often ended up with a secondary staff infection.  Since I have been staying home with our son and he is indoors nearly all the time, his allergies are virtually non-existent to the point that we were considering taking off the shots.  Last week, however, his feet broke out in huge boils between his toes.  I'm not sure if its allergies or what or what to expect if I take him to the vet.  Here is a link to some pictures if you don't mind taking a look.

Hello,  This is Dr. Cheng writing.  I have viewed the photos and
they look as if the lesions are either blisters or hives, due to having stepped onto/into something caustic or allergenic, including poison ivy.  I am glad that Max is being seen by his vet.  He will probably need a course of steroids to relieve this problem.  If you cannot locate the inciting factor he may have to be retested for allergies and desensitization resumed.  Let us know how it goes!
