Dog attack. Exposed Crop.


In the Brooder
Jan 17, 2021
Hi y’all. Our girl was attacked by a dog last night. A huge amount of feathers and skin were torn off from her front leaving her crop completely exposed/ looks enlarged and the area around it also exposed. She is awake moving around a little and drinking water. We have cleaned the wound out, put antiseptic on it and given her some antibiotic. She still seems to be in shock. As we do not have the money for a vet I am wondering will it be more humane for us to put her down or should I attempt to continue looking after her. Is it possible for an area of skin so large ( about the surface area of a tennis ball) to be completely removed exposing her insides to heal. Thanks for any advise.
