wash it good then coat the entire area with bag balm so no more urine gets on the skin and it helps it heal.

Thanks you guys! Just got done treating. Washed with weak betadine solution, dried him off & applied bag balm. After clean up it wasnt as bad as it looked initially. Mud spots can be deceiving!

I maintain a burn-free buck by spraying the typical burn areas & his face with PAM. Yep - the pan spray. I spray his chest, underarms, back of his front legs, under his neck, etc. It can be done through the fence. A light coat is best. Your not trying to seal off the skin - just trying to repel the vast majority of the urine. I spray him once a week on Mondays.
