At the moment I was like "Gah, that's silly, I would never do THAT!" But now it occurs to me that I probably COULD. And it would save the expense of a vet visit. She had these neat little needles in individual cap-things and it looks like they're available for purchase on vet websites.
Does anybody routinely lance their pigs' cysts? and if I were to want to do so, what size needle would I want?
also, has there been any thought about the correlation between these cysts and bathing? Both my boys are rather oilier and flakier than my girls (one's a teddy/mix and one's a texel) and I wonder if I haven't been bathing them enough.

Abbey's cyst is very round and smooth with no skin flap on top. My poodle had many, many sebaceous cysts removed and they were also very smooth and round. I have never seen one with a flap of skin.
I was told not to squeeze it by her vet.
