    K, this is from my iTouch, so I can't post pics.

    Early this morning, my 8 year old autistic brother told me, Blank, theres a black dog in the duck pen! He is breathing steadely but has 3 teethholes through the skin[\\b] and it's kind of gross. Is there anything I should do?[​IMG]

    you need to clean the wounds with saline or betadine or water with salt dissolved in it which ever you have, then make sure to put something like neosporin on the wounds. Keep him in a warm safe place where he can recover from shock and rest while healing. You can also trim feathers if it helps with treating. Let us know how it goes. [where are the wounds]?
