I have a 9 pound Chandler (I know big girl). My Rooster clawed her 6 about weeks ago. When it first happened, it was the size of a quarter. I went to my vet went I first saw it. He gave me an antibiotic and I gave it to her like he said and put medicine on the wound as well. This did nothing for the wound. After 2 weeks I took her to my vet. Around the office I could hear the word going from one person to another... That hen weights 9 pounds.... I was laughing, but she isn't fat just a big girl. I came home with Cephalexin 250 mg 3 times a day. I have given her the meds and still the injury is not looking better. From the first day of the injury until now it has gotten to the size of a silver dollar. She has been going after it and I have vet wrap on it now. The wound is hard but doesn't look great. Does anyone have an suggestions of what I can put on it. She is really tried of my fooling with it and her!!!!!!
