    Just make sure you consistently flush it out.

    It has to heal from the inside before you let it close up on the outside. Just because it scabs over on the outside does...

    I use a plain sewing machine, not a serger. Some people would rather just serge the materials together, so you can still see the layers at the edge. I don't like doing that because it frays...

    Good point about the usefulness of a probiotic.

    Also my guinea pigs love the taste of the bene-bac gel. I get the dial-a-dose syringe. Works great when they are on an antibiotic.
