Hello cazsteggles2012, I am still treating my duck for bumblefoot and it is now almost gone. I put enough antibiotic to go into the hole where the cap was removed. You want to lightly swab the DMSO over it. If the q-tip is fully saturated and you are going over the antibiotics, it will suck them up off the foot. You want to make sure the antibiotic goes into the foot as much as possible then swab. For an extra precaution, I actually squeeze the q-tip over the hole so any remaining antibiotic goes back in the foot. You then want to make sure the foot completely air dries before wrapping. If you wrap it when it is wet, the antibiotics will come off and stick to the gauze. Also, as you notice the bumblefoot make a new scab (because it is healing), you want to pry it off again so you have an opening again for the antibiotics to go in. Good luck and keep me posted on your progress.
