    My hen was attacked by a couple dogs....took two chunks from her lower back down next to her tail......Fairly deep....she is able to walk....def in shock....went to Tractor supply to get penicillin, will dress her wounds with warm soapy water and some ointment....anyone have any more suggestions.
