Hello everyone my name is Erika. I have visited this site to get info on chickens and roosters. On Sat night, I'm guessing late night, my rooster was brutally and violently attacked by a presumed possum. I found him early sunday morning battered and barely alive. I rushed him in the house and rise the truly devastating wounds her received. I didn't have any bêtadine so just smeared neosporin on the wounds. They cover most if not all his back and side of his lower body. I bought betadine to combat infection but my attempts must have been to little to late bcz his wounds became smelly and infected. I wanted to take to the vet as I'm sure he has necrotic tissue because of the smell and the look of the skin but no vet would see him. I've never had anything like this happen since he is our only rooster. He's currently still eating and drinking. I stopped by the local feed store and was told to buy duramycin 10 and blue kote. Is that enough and the right medicine. I'm very worried because I have no prior experience with this situation. I really want to do all I can bcz he is trying so hard to live and he is such a great little guy. Please advice this confused and helpless feeling person. I was also given an ointment called blue lotion. Is that the same as the spray blu kote? Thanks for ur help.
