    Poor Cracker dog has a bad cough. There's nothing we or the vet can do for him. :(

    There are loads of cats here. Some just strays but some wear collars and I assume have probably been neutered. A lady comes round every day with buckets of food to feed them. They follow her around crying for the food. She's like the Pied Piper!

    Jasmine cat says emu oil is DELICIOUS but the tea tree cream, not so much. The cream also dries like glue, it stuck her bodysock to her again
    It's just me here this morning so ministering to her is difficult.

    Hahaha my dog does that, she won't come in unless you're out and dripping! Also she sits outside the bathroom and talks to me when I'm putting my makeup on, not sure what that's about.

    I've got normal Asda honey?

    I think what we'll keep doing is smear the cream on then put her bodysock back over it so she can't lick it off immediately, give it a chance to soak in. Maximum contact time, minimum getting licked off. I'll also keep a close eye on her when her bodysock is off.

    I posted before but I dunno where it's gone!

    Be careful of that anti itch cream, some reports of cats vomiting/shaking after licking it.

    For an open wound aloe vera or saline gel are good. I wouldn't like to put anything else on something open really.

    Manuka honey? Probably a bit late now lol

    I know a lot of bunnies owners swear by it to help healing wounds.

    We've just been down the pet shop and got some anti-itch cream that's got tea tree oil and some other reasonably natural stuff in. I don't think it's really intended for wounds (I don't think any of them are) but does say it's for application on irritated areas and the lady I asked said it was probably the best of the products they stock - there's also a spray that's basically the same - so we'll see how it goes.
    I don't know what it tastes like but it smells very "medicinal" so probably tastes awful. Or so I hope.

    Fingers crossed.

    I'll keep the emu oil to hand as well.

    Bathing it with SSS is not having much effect except annoying her, so I'm wondering if there's maybe a spray we can get at the pet shop?

    ... or emu oil perhaps?

    I've also got coconut oil which is safe for her to lick but I don't know if it'll do anything for the wound.
    Emu oil is fine, as the wound isn't healed I wouldn't use coconut oil.

    It took all my willpower! If it had come anywhere near our table I probably would have put it in my rucksack
