    Default For those who use douxo pads ..save money make your own

    I posted this for telly03 in response to another post. When Tyson had inter digital cysts I figured this out. I know the pads aren't super expensive but this is much cheaper and I will forget to reorder until I go to use them and they are out because I am oh so responsible.

    After some research I figured out how to make my own douxo pads. Use gauze 4x4s or cotton balls what ever your preference. Go to cvs or walgreens and buy hibicleans. I buy the generic version. A bottle is about 6 bucks. You then mix it 3 parts hibicleans to 1 part water because the bottle is a 4 percent solution and duoxo are 3 percent. You can use your old douxo container and fill it with solution and gauze pads or jsut do what i do because I'm lazy and soak them whith the solution as needed. The bottle makes a ton of pads.

    This is the more expensive name brand version but you get the idea.

    Hibiclens is actually a surgical wash. Used in hospitals forever. Very good to kill bacteria. What surgeons wash their hands in. Of course..it's a stronger version,but my vet likes it if critters get any kind of skin condition and you can dilute a tiny bit for a face was too. Target has it and other drug stores

    Thanks for posting this. I sent it to my husband. We are constantly using duoxo wipes as tank tends to get yeasty very easily. Its time to reorder them so this was perfect timing
