So the other day, a roo of ours, a small bantam named Dusty, was attacked by an unknown predator(at this moment we're assuming it was a raccoon, but we can't tell). The bite is small and more of a scrape on the back of his head/neck. He is alive and doing fairly well, responding okay with what's left of his one eye, but his face has been -- I wouldn't say mangled -- but damaged to a degree. The right side of his face is fine, and with a little cleaning will heal with a bit of TLC, but the left side got the worst of the bite administered to him, and has now swelled up. My mother is attempting to clean him of the dried blood, and it's going pretty well, but we might not be able to get out all of the dirt from the little crevices. What I'm wondering is what happens if he contracts an infection. What kind of medicine would we administer to him? Would it be a sort of antibiotic shot, or just simply crushed pills from our own cabinet? Would it be better to just put him down? He might not even develop an infection, but we want to be sure, just in case. It would be a great help to us if you could give us an answer of any sort. Thanks.
