Bandages and Wounds – Critical Points of Owner Care and Awareness
I want to help prevent the ruin of a bandage or incision line, removal of stitches by pets, licking and infecting a wound (dog spit isn’t sterile no matter what a Washington Post journalist promises you).
The number one reason a bandage or incision gets wrecked is dogs are smarter than we are. Repeatedly, owners say “He didn’t pay any attention to the bandage until we went to bed” or this: “We didn’t think it would be a problem because when we’d tell him to stop, he would.” and of course when they’re not there to say “Leave it!!!” – – they eat it.
I also want people to know the most common bandages and stitches that have complications so they can be EXTRA vigilant.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
