Anyone have any experience with these pads for abscesses?

Yes they are the best thing I've used to draw out abscesses, along with soaking in Epsom salts.

Yes soak once daily and poultice/wrap. Dependent on what vet says, sometimes soak twice a day.

I've used them as well for a hoof abscess. I was instructed to soak the hoof in Epsom salts and warm water for 15 minutes once a day, dry and then apply the pad and wrap with duck tape to keep it in place. It did work well.
