Hi Bluebean, the iodine I’ve bought from chemist for use on my pets was Betadine antiseptic solution, aqueous. It is Povidone Iodine 10% which was equal to the vets povidine aqueous when I couldn’t get there. However, it may not be suitable as some could have an allergic reaction just like humans can. Maybe someone knows the answer to this, but I suggest an injured hog should always be taken to a professional for treatment. And yes, just eat or cook with your expensive honey, it really does hurt! Hope your other hog is doing well, my new little one is packing the food away. Best wishes.
