Subject: Hydrogen Peroxide

I can't address the ear cleaning bit. I used to
clean my ferrets' ears with mineral oil until I
realized there were actually ear cleaning products
out there.

I have been told (that nebulous "they") that, on a
injury...human being or should only
use hydrogen peroxide once. After that, it can
start killing tissue. I live by that rule with
myself and my wildlife and domesticated animals
though I can't offer any scientific evidence.

Just thought I'd stir things up a bit.....
