My 16 week old Turkey looks to have either gotten his head stuck in the fence or something grabbed him through it. There is no puncture wounds that I can see though there is some blood. His whole head and neck are swollen up, red, and looks to be blood filled. He acts miserable.
I've washed his whole head and neck off with iodine water.
I've heard I can give him aspirin for the pain? Does anyone know how much; I'm guessing he weighs about 8 pounds or so.
I have Tylan 50 or Penicillin~ I would like to give him an antibiotic, I had a different turkey get attacked by a dog last year and he developed gangrene and died IN JUST THREE DAYS! So I don't want this one to get an infection. Which one and how much?
Thank you in advance!!!
