Hi Cathal as Geoff said they always come back in my experience I had one removed by a vet many years ago only for it to return, so never again. What I do is pare the corn out of the pad it usually looks like a very small stone, but you have to do this each time the corn returns. I did try bazuka for warts by putting this onto it after I had pared it out, it does sometimes work on very new corns but old corns it will not as the tissue has become fibrous and the pad has lost its cushion, the only remedy then, is to have the toe amputated.

the only permanent cure for corns is to apply liquid nitrogen which is actually intense cold as in flasks of ai to the corn
it is painless to the dog and after a few days the corn turns black and starts to loosen
after about 8 / 9 days it comes away roots and all and because it has been killed by the intense cold it will not grow again
very few vets have liquid nitrogen

You're right, Mark. The greyhound vet is Daniel Doherty of Uxbridge, and his number is 01895 271444. You can read information on this in one of the previous topics on corns.

Cheers guys, now to find a vet with liquid nitrogen
The poor lad has corns on every foot that i keep paired
Tried the bazooka for warts and it worded for some
But he has one on his hind leg that has made him completely lame for the last month, its a killer for him

hi cathal, its a shame your in ireland, i am about 7 mlies from
daniel doherty who invented the corn treatment, and people have
been going to him from all over the country. its three weekly treatments, and once its complete the corns will never come back.
my advice to you dont waste money on any other treatments,they will always come back, good luck tony.

Tony, can he send whatever it is, or does the dog actually have to go there ?

Hi Cathal....I have been to Daniel with 4 different dogs and he has cleared them all. He has said some are harder than others so no stonewall guarantee, only problem you will have living in Ireland is he needs to see the dog on 3 consecutive weeks for this treatment.

Many years ago we took a dog to Linda Corney at Bowral for removal of a cabbage wart. She wouldn't remove the wart & told us to just use DMSO on it. We thought yeh right!!! But we did as she said (we used the roll-on) & it worked. Have been doing this ever since. Maybe it might work on corns too.
