Please can anyone offer any advice - my favourite hen was attacked by a dog. She is still able to walk and run although has a wound above her tail and one to her wing.

I have cleaned them and sprayed with vetericyn and she is in a dark box.

Any advice appreciated!

Hi there,

Sorry to hear this. One of my dogs got hold of my favourite hen last year and she was badly wounded. I did much the same as you. I did clean the wound with hydrogen peroxide before the vetericyn though. Put her in a cat carrier with towels and access to water. I didn't give her food for the first night. I put electrolytes in the water and cleaned her wound each day.
I was lucky and she healed nicely but it did take about 2 weeks, for which I kept her in isolation. I did let her out in the yard by herself so she could forage for a while each day...I am convinced that helped too.

Good luck with this, I hope she comes through this ok.
