Our one dog is the guarder of the chickens, walking among her flock everyday, all day. It's that other, bigger dog... Our German Shepherd broke through her cable run and had the afternoon free to "play" with our free range flock If we're around, she leaves the birds alone, but if she's bored, you get the idea. Came home to three dead birds that I know of, and a Cochin roo in shock, huddling in the coop. Inspection revealed a pretty bad puncture/bite out of his back; I didn't expect him to live through the night. Yet tonight, there he was on the coop floor again, still somewhat alive! Now I'm not going to go to some crazy surgical lengths to save him, but I do really like him and would like to do anything I can (again within reason) to help get him through this. I've brought him inside to avoid the cold, but have not treated the wound in any way (wasn't sure if pouring peroxide or the like into such a large wound was advisable...?). It's hard to see the whole thing, but best I can tell, it's at least one hole 1" x 1" where muscle tissue is visible. Maybe a few other spots close by. I haven't found any other damage elsewhere (other than he's limping), but checking a Cochin has proved rather difficult to navigate the fluff. What should I add to his water? Sugar or something better? Do I even attempt to clean the wound, and if so, with what? Thanks for any help or thoughts!
