A dog got one of my silkies and the skin and flesh on the neck is gone. All that I see is the muscle. What should I use to treat this? I need a way of keeping it clean. And would like to know what to use on the wound. Also his feathers are sticking to the sore. Should I soften it and remove the feahters? If he recovers from this will he grow feathers again? Will his skin in that area be thinner? What I have done so far is seperated him from the rest of the flock and keeping him in a cage instead of letting him roam around. I have vetericyn and sprayed it with that. I want to treat him as best as I can and don't really know what else I should do.
