Hello, I thought I had a totally secure coop and run, but last friday a coon find its one weak spot. He killed 2 of my beautiful easter-eggers and slashed another one. After reading up on how to treat injuries, I decided to bring her into the house and clean her wound well, and keep it covered with triple antibiotic ointment. She's been inside for almost 4 days. She's also on an oral antibiotic. the wound looks okay.......no signs of infection. But its a big wound........3" across and 2" wide. Her muscle and most of the fascia seem to be intact. Its just that her skin is missing. I was fairly overwhelmed when this happened, and probably should have tried to stitch it up somewhat. I'm thinking its too late, since the edges of the good skin are attached fairly well. I would have to release those edges to be able to pull it over the bare muscle. Am I doing the right thing by just keeping it slathered with antibiotic ointment, and letting it heal slowly on its own? I've read about "cell migration" and they say to not let any scab form, but to let the edges slowly grow into the bare area. Please advise me on your experience with this. She is eating okay and acting okay so far. darn those coons. Thanks for your help!
