    My dog bit one of my chicks, and she has a bite wound under her left wing. It doesn't seem deep. We gave her a little sugar water, what else can we do for her?

    I'd put a little neosporin on it.

    thank you for your quick reply!!! is there any way we should wrap it? it doesn't look too bad and the bleeding stopped. shes taking a nap i think and shes back under the heat lamp with the other two chicks. they're four weeks old.

    I wouldn't wrap it if it's not very deep and not where the other chicks will see it and pick at it.
