My dog had what looked like a cyst- the vet sad it was probably an embedded grass seed and he needed an anesthetic to remove it. I said I wasn't happy with that and would like to try drawing it out instead. He was given a course of antibiotics and an appointment to have his anesthetic in a week. I decided to try BLACK SALVE - usually a no-no with doctors and vets. I appllied it as  would to myself and left it for 24hrs and low and behold - it drew out the seed and left a nice clean hole which I put betadine on.

a little severe I think.

maybe next time use magnoplasm, it works and is of less concern on the skin.

I would rather poke a stick into my eye than put that on my dogs, it is irresponsible to do so

 That's scary stuff! had not heard of that !
there is another "black salve/ointment " which works fine & can be bought at chemists ? perhaps the OP used this one instead ?  It is called Ichthammol

if the OP used Ichthammol it'll do the dog's skin no damage, it has been a natural and safe remedy for aeons so let's just hope :)

Government agencies are usually fairly conservative in their wording.  So I though it was novel that the Therapeutic Goods Administration said of black salve:

"Your shouldn't sell snake oil".

 

Years ago coal tar ointment was used for anything and everything.  Wonder if that's the same ingredients.

maybe they took the coal tar out of it as it's carcinogenic, try using pine tar ointment instead...it's pretty good
