Caused by a dog attack this evening:
Her tail feathers gone. Large chunk of skin missing thats appox 3 inches across exposing the muscle, which is also gashed open. There is loose skin and fat globs dangling on the outer edges of the wound. I cannot afford a vet visit. If there was any way I could do it I'd have taken her there immediately. I had peroxide, sprayable neosporin, sprayable bactricine, and gel neosporin on hand. I washed it, cut feathers, and covered it all in neosporin jelly, and once that started to dry I sprayed it with the liquid neo.
I have leftover baytril for my dog at 68mg tablets. These I broke up and fed bits in her water and crumbles. she ate the crumbles but doesnt care for the water. Her wound looks awful and im scared about her future. I have her in my room in a cage on a towel. please look at the photos and give me any advise on further treatment. Shes been thu so much today. I dont know what else to do for her.
Should I keep it moist? Let it dry? The yellow is fat, the pink is muscle and the white line in the muscle is a deep cut filled with neosporin. Am I doing the wrong thing by not putting her down? shes acting ok but i know this must hurt really bad and im terribly worried about infection. There is no way to close the skin, its just gone. will it grow back over the muscle or make scar tissue? Any advise you can give me on home treatment is really appreciated. I just want to do the right thing by her. Ill be up late, If you want to call please do 931-551-6373 its 12:19am now my time.
