CHICKEN INJURED BY RACCOON..PLEASE HELP

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Last night my chicken was attacked by a raccoon but I was able to quickly get the raccoon to run away but in the meantime it left one of my chickens badly wounded on her backside. She has been isolated in a dog crate from the other chickens to help her recovery process.

 

Background information on the chicken:

- 4 years old

- Americana

- Weighs about 4-6 pounds

 

She is running around, eating, and drinking as normal which is good. I started her on Vetrimycin and a, giving her a vitamin supplement in her water as well.

 

Looking for any extra advice for how to take care of the wound please.  See picture below to see the wound.

I had some chickens get attacked by a racoon and had some pretty deep gashes. I cleaned then the best I could and used neosporin about twice a day. They healed up really well. That wound looks a bit larger than what I dealt with.
