Hi all, I am new to the site but have been stalking around on here for a while. Yesterday after noon one of my hens was attacked by a neighbor dog. He got a hold of her back end pretty good. My husband got him off of her but I am worried. She has a pretty good gash in her tail area going long ways ( about an inch and a half) and another make where the k9 pierced her but that not too deep. I rinsed it with warm water and sprayed iodine on it to help infection. I have her in a small crate with water and fresh greens for food. I have some ACV in the water. is there anything else we can do? or maybe something better I can give her or treat her with? Thank you for any help.

I might use some neosprin on her wonds, just not the one with the pain reliver in it and maybe a bit of baby asprin in her water to help with the pain.

" I usually see posted 1 baby(81mg) aspirin dissolved in a quart of water or 1 regular(325mg) dissolved in a gallon of water"

You might go for the Greek yogurt, scrambled eggs, and meal worms. (separate or mixed your choice) If she does not go for the meal worms then I would consider talking to a vet.
