Dog Got Chicken. NEED HELP ASAP!!!

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by cowboyclayt, Feb 13, 2019.

  1. There was a gap in the fence/gate that my dog slipped through. One chicken is hurt really bad. It's chest/neck area is pretty torn up. Some of it's insides are visible and slightly hanging out.

    Do I kill the chicken? Or is there something else I can do to save it?

  5. It didn't want me to get close to it. The other chickens are pecking at it some, so I need to isolate it for sure.

    It´s very hard to tell from the pictures. Do you have some better ones of her neck? And what´s her behavior rn?

  8. Yeah, i know. No better ones. Walking around and everything. Trying to pick at her neck, but can't reach very well.
