Unfortunately, I missed taking a rubber band off the leg of my 8-9 week old Silkie and the feather grew over it and I didn't see a problem until yesterday. The leg has a, like big scab all the way around the leg. I gave her (?) a bath and soaked her leg to loosen up the scab to see what was wrong with her leg. After I blow dried her I got a really good light and a pair of tweezers. I pulled the scab off, it didn't seem to bother her. It seemed like it was more nerve racking on me than on her. I saw something white in the wound and worried that it might be bone but it didn't seem deep enough to be the bone. I finally got hold of it and thought it was a piece of string. I really, honestly didn't remember putting a rubber band around her leg. My son asked me about it and I told him that I hadn't. Well, I pulled it out of the wound and cut it. It came out and there is a little blood, not much. Can I use peroxide on the wound? What else can I do for her?
