- I GAVE, dammit!
We try to keep the advice on this forum accurate and based on research or known fact!
I've indeed used mineral oil for some time to clean anal sacs - sometimes it really helps to make the sac more lubricated. I've also used it to extrude stuck penises.
On the rare occasion that I've given ivermectin orally, I've mixed it with vegetable oil.
Mum -- do you think castor oil would be a possible alternative to the use of mineral oil? Is the issue of rancidity (is that even a word?) the reason why veg-based oils aren't ideal for anal sac cleaning?
I have to admit...the more I think about mineral oil and its chemical make-up, the less I like the idea of using it for much of anything.
