    My puppy got a hold of one of my guineas. It looks to have peeled some of the skin off the back and don't see any damage to the muscle, and it gets around fine. I am thinking that I will get some animal disinfectant and spray it on there. I've heard of this but I haven't used it before. Should I do that or put it out of its misery ? [​IMG][/IMG]

    I said misery because I could tell he was in pain. I made the mistake of leaving him in a coop with my injured Delaware hen while I went to the store to get disinfectant. By the time I got back, the hen had chewed him up so bad that he couldn't walk and his backbone was exposed. I had to put him down.
