Using Terramycin Ointment

Post by Akoniti on Sun Mar 19, 2017 9:08 pm

The breeder we got our last batch from recommended terramycin ointment for eye infections, and I've got the ointment and a mouse (Stinky) with an eye infection.

What I don't know is how to administer it- just wash my hands and gently goop some over her eye with a fingertip, or use a q-tip, or warm up a pan of it and dunk her in it (j/k Smile ) ?

Let me know if you have a good method, thanks!

Lol. I just dab a bit on the eye with a clean finger tip. And give it a gentle smear. The mouse will then smear it all over their entire body somehow. I try to just hold them for a few minutes to keep them from grooming so the medicine can sink in a little. Good luck!
