Help!!
Two weeks ago, we had a predator attack, possibly a possums. I thought my silkie had gotten attack, no blood but I noticed a small hole. Also she had lice, so I treated her with DE dust bath and bronco spray. So far the treatment has worked, I don't see anymore lice. I cleaned her wound and medicated. Now I noticed she has other holes appearing on her skin, mostly on her chest but now one is close to her wing. Ive tried to research and can't find anything.

Did you find any maggots in the wounds?

Flush and clean out the wounds with Hibiclens, then apply triple antibiotic ointment.
Keep her in a dry clean area away from flies.

Is she alert and able to eat/drink on her own?
How old is she?

No maggots. She's about 7months, poop was yellow/runny in the beginning and I was hand feeding but now she's alert and eats/drinks on her own, poop is back to normal. I give her medicated food, B complex droplets, epson salt baths and was putting on antibiotic ointments.

I will try the Hibiclens. Thanks
