I would be a real good idea not having another vet bill this month. Eddie the cat had a toe as big as a grape that I soaked in a pan of hot water three times a day. WIthin 24 hours it was almost back to normal and by the second day of soaking it looked really good. Soaking a muzzle however is just about impossible so that is why we used the sprayer and most of the hot water (my tank is little) so maybe we should do that again. His wiskers are right there and that makes it sensitive in the first place but it must really hurt as well because he does not want it touched and twists and tries to squirm away.

I ran into a case of deep pyoderma on my one dog when I lived in an apartment complex with lots of wet areas and ducks. I used mupirocin ointment (found it in the Merck Manual and asked for it) and it cleared up the spots in no time, even after a long course of Cephalexin. It's a human antiobiotic ointment used to treat impetigo and also used for people who have MRSA.
