    Tablets dont digest "disolve". It acts like a copper penny would in the gut of a dog.

    Suspension is better.

    + ornacycline - generic avian antibiotic in powder form. mixes well with yogurt to add it to your dog's food. great in case of accidents, etc. *edit* - can be bought at most pet stores.

    + acerpromazine - you can order it on-line for cheap. if you have a tasmanian devil that won't sit still to let you help them, it does the trick.

    the body naturally will flake it off like a scab in time. i wouldn't pour it in a gaping wound but for surface scratched and cuts that would require 2-4 stitches anything more probably would need stitches.

    This is why super-glue was invented for in the first place ;)

    It works great for small cuts,I had a gall bladder surgery and that's what the hospital used on me,4 cuts about an inch long each.If it's a big cut I'd stitch it,but just minor stuff super glue works great.I don't think it's poison,probaly could even eat a little of it but I wouldn't try it.
