Re: Abscess needs to be lanced but can't go under

I use warm compress on abcesses to get them to the surface and then clean as described above. My recent abcess on a hairless doe took a good few days to come to the surface but it did and shes all healed up now.

Ive got at the moment

2 triple explorers
1 high rise mamal
1 triple parrot cage

Re: Bleeding from Lady parts - Please help!

If it was coming from her lady parts it's quite likely it was pyo especially if she was poorly with it. Antibiotics can hold it off but very rarely get rid of it. A spay is the best way to eliminate the problem.

I think staph infections can cause patches of missing fur also.
If they have mites you wouldn't see them anyway as they're not visible to the naked eye. I would treat them with ivomectin drops just to rule out mites. I don't see the need in bathing them.

Re: Cage suggestions
