    Lots of info on here. She will need isolation for rest and protection from the others, and good wound care. I'd probably stock up on Neosporin. She should also have a systemic (injectable) antibiotic; I believe Tylan or a penicillin in the drug of choice; Tetracycline won't cut it.

    That's just an overview from what I've read, not a good detailed treatment plan.

    I would pop her with tylan injectable for 3 to 5 days.
