    I can't imagine superglue hosting bacteria. Not sure about the chemical toxicity side of it.

    But a medical grade version of it is being used on wounds now, and is recommended part of first aid. I was surprised but it makes sense.

    Aarrghh, just accidentally used the back button and lost my post.

    So summary: did some googling, found out the medical grade skin glue is quite expensive and generally sold in packs of 6-10 doses for a minimum of $220 (online, that is).

    But - of course! - you can buy a single dose on Ebay: Leukosan Adhesive - Skin Glue - Single Tube | eBay

    Thanks everyone. I'm going to talk to the vet about it tomorrow. I read that some of the regular glues are made from the same stuff as the medical grade just cheaper cos no regulations.

    If they can do it for me I'll b happy. Or I might give the bandaid one a go with some sterri strips or somethin.

    Pretty sure the medical grade and the hardware store stuff are the same. At least that's the impression I got from the first aid instructor. You can always sterilise the end of it with metho or something, but the way it smells, I'm pretty sure - there's nothing to kill.
