Thank you. I'll try that.If there's a vet close to you, I would get a systemic (not topical) antibiotic and a painreliever like Meloxicam. If you can't afford a vet visit, a lot of farm animal vets are pretty good at giving out limited prescriptions for livestock...especially if they know you. I'm glad he is surviving. For Clyde--have you tried putting a big dog crate out where he is with special treats and food inside? I would put a small branch inside the crate so he feels really safe. Then you just try and sneak up on it and close the door.
I usually just call him and he comes right up to me. I call him and he answers or plays peek a boo through grass with me.
