Does anyone here use betadine? And if so, what concentration for cleaning a wound?

Also, the vet prescribed 1.5ml twice a day for Milo, who is 1.75kg. The concentration is 11 mg/ml. Does this seem a bit high for his weight? :shock:

Try mixing a tiny amount of pure apple juice in to disguise the taste

I got to try Metacam earlier when it exploded it my face, and boy was that delicious!

I also tried my buns' pellets once. :oops: Tastes like grass! :lol:
