Draenog, you are right. Don't know where my mind was in thinking it is not an antibiotic. I guess I was thinking about ones sold by prescription.

Thanks again everyone, and Kalandra I do the same - I guess the ointment must've made him uncomfortable somehow since he didn't react to the smell at first. The wound spray has a really strong smell as well. He usually anoints with smelly things but I'm glad he leaves it alone.

Little update for today, it looks better to me; the wound is dry and there's more scabbing. I have some pictures from the past couple of days. It looks a bit worse in the pictures than in real life though (probably because of the flash). The first two pics are from Friday, when the wound was open again. The third & fourth pics are from Saturday, before cleaning and applying the wound spray. The last picture is from today before I applied the spray again.

Nancy I totally understand, all those brands, names and laws are really confusing

Wound is still a bit red, no pus or swelling. Better safe than sorry so we have a vet visit scheduled for tomorrow.

It looks a lot better over time. Hope the vet visit goes well.

Just wanted to post another update; Tr is doing great, the wound is getting smaller and smaller. We didn't go to the vet since the scab looked nice and clean. I showed it to some people at my work who've seen lots of wounds and they told me to wait a bit longer since it was looking a lot better already. I also took his wheel away, he might have been scraping against it since it's healing a lot better since I took it out. Not that he's happy about it, he keeps trashing his cage 'cause he really wants his wheel back!
