    I'm glad she's improving. You might try treating the wound with Vetericyn. It is labeled for use on birds. If it is smelly, she may have a secondary infection and the Vetericyn will help nip that in the bud.

    Quote:Tractor Supply has it if you have one close. Otherwise a vet can sell it. It's not the cheapest product out there, but it's easy to use. Just spray it on. I had a horse with a catastrophic leg wound that it did help, and now another leg wound on another mare that it didn't really help. I do think it will help your girl. Glad she is doing better!

    Oh, you can also order it online.

    Feed and farm stores often carry it or you can check local vets and see if they sell it.
