Our Beagle attacked one of our 7 week old bantam Barred Rocks last night at about 7:00 p.m. Did alot of damage to her neck and chest. Ripped off feathers and skin around her neck. There was some blood, but not a lot. We brought her inside and have been keeping her under a light for warmth, but are keeping the box covered with a towel so it's a bit dark. Thankfully she made it through the night. I came on BYC briefly last night and did a search for dog attacks to see what others have done to treat their birds. I went to the pharmacy and bought some wound spray cleaner, Iodine/Betadine and Neosporin. I sprayed the wound cleaner first, then dripped the Iodine on the wounds afterwards. I did not use the Neosporin because the wounds seem to "open" to try to spread cream on them. Also, I did NOT buy anything that had "pain reliever" in it, per what I read last night. In my panic, I forgot to buy electrolytes. I have been able to get her to take several sips of water. I did add a little sugar to it. I will get the electrolytes today. Here are my questions: 1. How often do I need to clean the wounds? 2. Should I get antibiotics to put in her water, or should I get her a shot at the vet instead? 3. Do I need to dilute the Betadine? I didn't when I used it last night. 4. How often should I be offering her sips of water? She isn't drinking on her own. 5. As far as electrolytes, how much do I add to the water or should she drink them straight??? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!!
