I wasn't planning on using vaseline?
He is 1 1/2. You can still keep the area clean with saline. We are using Baytril here.Hi! I heard face abscesses can be dangerous and also can reoccur. Please keep us updated on your rattie! I would love to hear how Ahab does! How old is he/she?
My rat went to the vet a few days ago on Monday. The vet aspirated the abcsess on her face, drained out a lot of green pus and checked for hard lumps. She also tried to look inside the mouth to see if there was an infection. As for flushing the abcsess with saline from home, the needle hole was so small so I cannot flush it. So it's basically wait and see. She is currently on Clavamox and Metacam. Fingers crossed it doesn't return!
