I cleaned off the scab and wiped away the white stuff. There doesn't seem to be any discharge within the abscess wound; the white stuff is mostly on the surface. In fact the hole is almost sealed off and I don't see any discharge in it, so there's not really much to flush. We stopped flushing after her last follow-up (around 4 weeks ago) per vet advice. I sat with her with the warm compress for a bit and she ate some pellet mash, water, and a few pieces of hay. Still eating lots of her favorite veggies, too.
