    Hi all, in need of advice. The Fox got 4 of our bantums recently. My poland survived but was very lethargic, wobbly on her feet and generally not good. At the time I noted a couple of puncture wounds on her chest but they were small, I guessed that most of her injuries were internal and expected her to die. 3 weeks later she is much better, taking dust baths, eating and drinking and spreading her wings. Today though I noticed an oozing lump, I think it might be from one of the puncture wounds. Not sure what to do about it? Any ideas? Much appreciated.[​IMG][/IMG]

    I can't really see the picture well but have you cleaned it? Does it smell bad?

    Hi there, it does smell slightly, pretty sure that it is infected. But she is really well in herself. I am surprised how it has grown over the past few weeks from a tiny puncture wound.

    If it's infected it will only get worst. You need to clean it out with Benadine or something
