    Our female peikin was attacked by our now only turkey. At the time following she was limp and lethargic and did not resist us (she is usually less then thrilled to be handled) we brought her inside and ran her a clean bath, which brought her around an after about ten minutes she was acting more like herself, quaking at us with handling. She only had damage to the bill with no difficulty quaking but she is wheezing with deep breaths. She no longer seems distressed I'm just worried about her bill healing, any advice on what treatments (neosporin etc) can be used on her bill?[​IMG]

    Great Thank you if I wasn't panicking at the time I would have had the sense to look through the forums more thoroughly, I wouldn't have thought about mixing in yogurt to help ensure calcium in healing and to soften food for comfort.
