    Week old Sebastopol. It was brooding with an older Seb and I think the older one was stepping on it?
    So, they buggar won't keep a band-aid on, so I seperated him from the bigger goosie.
    I have been putting neosporin on it. Should I do anything else??

    Keeping it clean and dry is most important. You can clean it with povidone iodine and NON pain relieving neosporin is just fine. The baby is adorable. I love sebs. It will be fine.

    I cleaned it again, just with soap and water, and then neosporined it and wrapped it in gauze and used the clear packing tape to keep it dry. Crazy goose!!! I need to get more knee sized band-aids tomorrow, they seem to work the best. The other foot was torn too, but not as bad.
    He can walk, is eating and drinking, so I guess he's okay. Grrrrr
    Thanks for the help!
