    Good morning,

    Saturday my chicken was attacked my a dog. I'm curious. I've cleaned it out with iodine and vetrecyn. I've gone between bandaged and unbandaged to let cry and then weep. Is there anything else I should be doing. She smells kind of sour smelling. [​IMG][/IMG]


    Yesterday she was eating and drinking. Today she is droopier and not really picking her head up or doing much of anything. It's beginning to worry me.

    Trim away any feathers that are getting into the wound. Flush it out with saline solution a couple times a day and then the iodine and finally an eye type triple antibiotic ointment. Leave it open.
