Hello, it is great to finally join BYC.
My one year old Black Sex Link, Blue, was attacked by a fox (or maybe cat) last week. She managed to escape and I rushed her to the vet immediately. Ten or so stitches later, she came through like a champ but then quickly developed a prolapsed oviduct. I treated her with daily clean ups, bacitracin and honey. Two days later, I had her back at the vets to have a bound egg removed. The very kind and excellent vet used a catheter with saline solution and surgical lubricant to coax the egg out intack!
Bue appears fine( eating, drinking and is perky) but has not laid another egg in two days and the area under her tail end appears swollen and feels warm.
Should I look into injectable antibiotics? I've read Nexel can be used...
Thank you for any help!
