My cochin rooster got attacked by the neighbors dog the other night. We didn't even notice he had gotton hurt until the next day after our hen had pecked at it for a bit. Being medically trained, I sterilized some supplies and stiched him up as best I could. The dog got him by his tail feathers and severed his tail bone. His tail was hanging on by mearly some skin. I was able to bring it up and back where it is supposed to be. There is a large area of skin missing though. He does seem to be healing okay. Even wandering around the yard when I let him out, keep the hen up so she leaves him alone. I am keeping them seperated until this resolves. My main concern of course is infection. I can tell there is a slight smell starting but I also just started with the ointment today. Should I try to contact my country vet and see if there is an antibiotic I should try to give him or is there something over the counter from maybe a feed store I could get? I really want him to make it. This kids really love them both and they are both actually really sweet chickens. They aren't even old enough to start laying (I know the rooster doesn't lay). They were born in Sept. Any advise would be helpful. Thank you.
