Neighbor's dog grabbed one of my girls on the back and behind her wing....worst is a large piece of flesh completely open and with what I believe is "fat" due to it's yellowish color. She has some smaller pierced wounds but her leg on that side is not working properly. It's been 3 days and I've kept her inside, warm and sprayed the wounds with Vetricyn and applied Neosporin cream. The first night she even laid an egg...she has continued to poop but no add'l eggs. She was drinking and eating but isn't drinking as much today. From the wounds weeping, her underneath side was caked and nasty so I gave her a warm bath, trying to not let that water touch any of the wounds. I've trimmed her feathers back to keep them out of the wounds and to keep down infection. I've also added Probiotics and Electrolytes to her water. The weeping that the wounds have done is clear and I think we've managed to keep infection at bay - however, I am very worried about the loss of use of her leg. I'd guess it's the connecting tissue that controls that leg is damaged as I don't feel any breaks, but I guess it could also be dislocated and I don't realize it.
After her bath I applied the Vetrycin and then applied Neosporin and covered it with a non-stick sterile pad and Vetwrapped it. I should have taken some pics and will after I unwrap if you guys think I should keep trying. Hubby is most concerned about the leg and I agree as how would she get around and life would just continue to be miserable.
Any advice, please!!!
PS - Thanks to all who have posted her about their experiences....otherwise I would have been looking up the most humane to take her to the Rainbow Bridge.
