    my runner drake survived 3 dogs attacking him but there is something wrong with his wing . i was wondering how to tell if it is spraned/dislocated/or broken?
    he flops over when he trys to walk he cant keep his balance. i put him in bath tub to swim and clean him up. he can swim fine with his legs. anyone know how to tell if its just the muscule?

    I think that the treatment would be the same for any of these injuries. Imobilize the wing, say with that self adhesive ace bandage.

    It doesn't look like it is sitting at the same degree as the other one. You should immobilize the wing as was said, is there a wound also on the wing?

    right about wing on left there is a punture wound in muscule i was wondering if this is what is keeping his wing from working?
    yes wing on left is injured wing
    yes small puncurte wound on right wing not to worried about that every small
    yes i had to fight dogs off i was home other wise he would of been dead a big boxer had him in his mouth flopping him around
    had to chase after them with 2x4 and scream and yell lol the boxer dropped him because he wanted to come after me
    this was a sight to be hold .... found out dogs live 1.7 miles from me over two roads and we have very thick woods

    poor baby, I hope they will take these dogs in because as you know they will be back, you'll just have to be ready this time.

    I am so sorry for your loss. You still need to talk to the dog people. And have something done about them. Once again I am sorry:barnie
