    i already did the surgery for bumblefoot. and I have some tricide neo. I heard that tricide neo kills bad bacteria in fish. but will it work on an open womb? or should I just clean the foot out with peroxide? please sugest something to flush her foot with.

    I've read that you shouldnt use tricide neo in an open wound, I dont know the reason though. I've always used warm epsom salts water as a flush then used iodine or betadine to wipe it, then packed it with neosporin (no pain reliever,) then wrapped it up. I've also used triple antibiotic as well.
