Our girl is about 6 months old and skittish , she’s usually by herself in the yard and yesterday she was attacked by a huge hawk, I saved her brought her inside put her in the tub cleaned her wounds out with water and put neosporin on them (my friend who works at a vet office told me to put that on until I can get the wound oil from tractor supply) She’s very calm but she’s standing up, moving around and drinking and eating (I think she’s eating not 💯 but I saw her drinking) I have her inside in a tote with pine shavings and put a heating lamp on her after the bath because she couldn’t dry herself off because she could turn her neck around to clean herself , anyone have any advice and do you think I can save her????? I love her so much so I really hope so!! She’s still just a baby ❤️

You could rinse with saline. Have you checked to see how deep the wounds are? Neosporin should be fine.
What is wound oil?
Is she eating ok?

Poor thing. You could mix 5 aspirin in a gal of water for pain. I would still offer fresh water and not offer the whole gal at once.
