Hey Binkbunny, I'll ask my vet, it's time to take my two in for their annual physical anyhow, I'll just put that on my list! Let me know if there is anything else.
OK in the interim I have a wound first aid memo for myself that says to use, betadine, polyhydroxydine or chlorhexidine solution for minor wounds and also listed is hydrogen peroxide (use diluted). But I am def. making sure to ask my vet!
OK and while we're at it, I'd like to share my "emergency kit" with everyone and encourage you to make one for yourself too. I have a plastic box that has the vets card taped to it, the hours and the emergency hours & phone # highlighted. Inside I have an ointment for wounds, bandage, gauze, styptic powder, flashlight, aloe vera gel, thermometer, saline solution, acidpohilus, two syringes, one for feeding and smaller one for medicine dosing, can of pumpkin, pedialyte, hot water bottle, eyedropper, scissors, tweezers, Rescue Remedy, cotton balls, nail clippers, file, couple of paper towels & Q-tips.
Also, Binkybunny, Gravehearted etc. I was advised by two bunny savvy vets (and one that gave me a hairy eyeball about it) to NEVER use Bag Balm as it can aggrivate the skin on a bunny and make the infection worse or one happen where there was none, not to mention it can be very bad if ingested and and that they had seen many cases of this, not just with bunnies. Have either of you heard this? If you could ask your vets if you happen to go in sometime that would be great to have additional info.
