Well, I also made sure to give him extra moisture-rich foods.. I figured the more hydrated his skin was, the faster he'd heal. Not like his skin is dry or anything.. I just figured to be safe.

Well I'm shocked.. Bram's healed amazingly well. It didn't look like this yesterday; I was shocked when I checked him this morning. Also... photo hogging by Edgar.
