My chicken was attacked tonight by my dog. She has some tail feathers ripped out. Her injury is located directly above her tail. The feathers are gone, the skin is removed. I can see what almost looks like yellow fat.
I isolated her from the other chickens, applied a mix of hydrogen peroxide and water to clean the wound and then applied neosporin. I ordered some animal bandage spray but it won’t be here until Saturday.
We are in the middle of a snow storm here so I did the best I could tonight. I am going to take her in to the vet tomorrow for possible stitches and antibiotics but any help or suggestions in the meantime would help.
I am so afraid she’s going to die Gretchen is my favorite chicken and I love her so much. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!
