Okay, I have a hen with bumblefoot issues on both feet. One foot is considerably worse than the other...it is swollen up very large, she will not bear any weight on it and it is flaming hot. We soaked it again tonight and tried to remove more of the black scab. She bleeds, but it is a really thick, almost pasty like blood. Like when human blood starts to clot. I am assuming this is pus or some of the infection in that blood. I am worried that what I am doing is not enough and she might need oral or injected antibiotics to help her. She is eating and drinking some. I have her isolated in a dog crate with a lot of soft bedding. Also, at what point do you all throw in the towel and say enough is enough, and cull the bird. As of today I have not contacted a vet and am not sure my DH would go for that. Not that he is cruel or doesn't care, but we went into this with the idea that they are livestock, not pets. (Although I love them all and call them my pretty girls.) I am just not sure he will go for a vet bill if we can try to treat her humanely on our own. So again...what kind of antibiotic and what dosing should I be looking for to help her out? At what point do you throw in the towel and cull the bird? Thank you all for the guidance.
