    Today we found one of my ladies with what looks to be a portion of her scalp missing. The bleeding has stopped but I don’t wanna mess with it too much because I’m sure it was very traumatic. We have moved her into our sunroom near a space heater because it’s quite cold out. We were advised by someone not to use spray and antibiotics or anything oral. Just to keep her safe and warm and hope that she pulls through it. I was thinking of trying to just put a little Neosporin over the wound but I’m not sure if I should just let her be? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I would go with your instinct and use the neosporin. Please keep us posted!
