I just ordered betadine and chlorhexadine to use on my adult male. His tail has been stuck for months. Soaks haven't worked for me. I do believe the oils have to be beneficial. Tried the Vita-B Complex too. I think it may be constipating him, so I've had to discontinue it. Someone talked about soaking in the Betadine, so I'm going that direction for now. I noticed that the chlorhexadine was a similar disinfectant and will try that too. "Shed-ease" didn't work at all. It's mostly aloe vera with some glycerin. I noticed no difference after several soaks.
