    I have a pekin cross, about 10-11 weeks, chick that is alive I think but my dog for some reason went for it, he has never done that before. It has a detectable heartbeat and I believe it's breathing. I don't think there are any broken bones and I think it's just in shock. What should I do? How do I know if anythings broken without hurting it? It's eyes are also closed, is this a bad sign?

    It could just be stressed and/or in shock. It could have internal injuries.... I can't tell you though how to check [​IMG] Put it in a nice quiet warm place and allow it to recover. Make sure it has access to food and water.... Hopefully someone can offer more detailed advice. I hope the little chick is ok!
