When managed correctly, foot baths can be a useful tool to control foot warts. However, poor management — using the incorrect concentration of chemicals or failing to keep the solution fresh — can jeopardize success.

That’s why it’s a good idea to make foot bath maintenance a designated task.

“Managing foot baths is always a problem unless the job has been designated to someone, and it is a routine,” says Dale Moore, veterinarian at the University of California.
