MistyRose, My guy had a deep abscess a couple of months ago. After the vet came and drained it, I would soak it every two days, for 15 minutes, squirt betadine into the hole, then rewrap, using a sanitary pad, vet wrap over that, and duct tape over that, making a duct tape boot. That kept it dry, and added some padding to it. The vet said it was extremely important to keep it dry! After 10 days, it was healed enough that we could just let it be.
It's the little things that drive me wild...
