1) What type of bird , age and weight. Ameraucana approx 1 year no clue what weight, small 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Dog chewed on bird's rear end, top of body above tail, torn skin with tail hanging, minor bleeding now 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? 1 hour 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? rinsed the wound, removed all yucky stuff from wound including loose feathers. Usually, I just use blue coat on the injury and let them be, I have 2 others I have treated successfully. My question is that the tail is dragging the wound open and hanging loose down the back and I do not know what to do about it. I want to wound to heal closed but the large tail feathers are not going to let that happen. I need to know what to do about the tail. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? Will treat myself, just need to know what to do.
