Puncture Wound

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a little Jack Russell dog that has been around chickens for almost 10 years, and has never bothered them. But I came home today to find that she had gotten ahold of one of my young hens, because we leave the coop door open all day and shut them up at night, so they have free run of the yard. She has a small wound where the dog grabbed her, but she is eating and drinking. I was wondering if I needed to put anything on the wound that could help her heal up. (btw she is inside in a cage because she seemed to be in shock and wouldn't stand when we first found her)

Where is the wound at? How deep does it appear? Keep it clean and put a little triple antibiotic ointment (no painkiller) on it .

It's right under her wing. It's about a centimeter wide but I can't really tell how deep it is, but if I had to guess about half an inch or so.

She's doing fine now by the way, I was just worried because a neighbors dog a few years back did about the same thing to one of my dads chickens and it ended up not making it. But thanks for the help!
