So I've got a bird that has a pretty bad case of bumblefoot. I've done a couple surgeries on other chickens and I just never feel like I get all of the infection out. There's always some white fibery stuff once I pull the scab off, and I can't tell if it's supposed to be there or if it's part of the infection, so I stop. They typically bleed a lot for me, too.
Well, this is the worst I've ever had. I don't have a picture right now, but my main question is: Can I use shots of Penicillin to treat Bumblefoot. Someone on a Facebook group said I could, but I'm not sure if it's a shot to the meaty part of the breast or what and I'm not sure on the dosage.
I have lots of short-acting Penicillin in the fridge from TSC that I have no uses for, so if I can use it for bumblefoot, that would be great!
Thank you in advance.
PS: I'll try to get a picture tonight when I put them in for the night.
