Hi! My rat has a super deep puncture wound, idk how he got it. He's a lone rat. a bunch of puss came out today and opened the wound, i flushed it with salt water and put bactine on it. what else should I do? does he need antibiotics?
If its got puss coming out then you want to dry it from the inside out and encourage it to heal that way, not seal over with a scab and trap the infeciton in. Can you get a photo of the wound, its possible that this was actually a burst abcess, they can be misleading if your not used to them
