Re:ulcer/cyst looking thing on Pony


Pete — thanks for the site for the diamox. I also have asked my vet to order some which comes in 250mg tablet form. I didn’t realize that I could use those until I saw your last post. They can have them for me in a couple of days. My next news is that this morning I noticed my Pony had some "stuff" coming from the infected area. I looked at him carefully and realized that there was a "pus" like residue coming from the cyst/blister area. Since I only have formalin on hand right now, I read up again on that and made another formalin bath for him. I removed him from the big tank . . . gently expressed as much "goo" as I could from the area . . . and put him in the medicine tank. Left him for about an hour and then returned him to home tank. He is still eating . . . no buoyancy problems . . . and seems to be hanging on. The only thing that worries me is that there appears to be a small [u]hole[/u] in his side. I read that myacin, a topical treatment, is useful or possible a betadine solution. I will try to find one or both tomorrow. If you have heard of this I would love your experience with this. This Seahorse is one of my originals and I have had him for several years and would hate to lose him! As always, thank you for your time and experience.
