She seems fine. Her wing has a minor injury; the skin is broken, but it's not deep. I put her in the hen house last night and she came out with the others this morning. She's keeping to herself, but she's able to fly (at least a little).

What do I do for her?
The only thing I could think of was to put Neosporin on the injury.

BTW, IDK if it matters, but they free range. (That's how the dog got a hold of her in the first place.) :-(

Any and all help/advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

Flush the wound with saline solution and then clean it with Betadine. Then pack with neosporin.
Do this once or twice a day till healed.
