Our chocolate lab got ahold of our rooster over the weekend. He's fine other than a quarter sized wound on his back. I'm a nurse so I've been doing standard wound care, but I'm finding it difficult to wrap a chicken. I'd like to leave it uncovered, but fire ants have been a problem; his wound was covered in them when I went to clean it the other day. So, I've been changing the dressing once a day, debrieding with saline, batadine swabs, spraying peroxide, covering with a non-stick gauze, and wrapping with a self-adhesive bandage (co-flex).
Does anyone have any tips on how to treat or wrap a wounded rooster?
