R.C.R.I. 7 mo. old. Badly swollen ankle. Has been swollen for about 1 1/2 weeks. Fairly sure puncture wound that has caused abscess. Seemed to be getting better yesterday but today was obvious it was much worse. Cleaned area thoroughly tonight with peroxide and a soft tooth brush. Poured on Benadril ~ let dry and applied Blue Kote. Ankle is hot and has a VERY FOUL ODOR. One very tiny place with drop of blood showing above the most swollen part. I feel it needs to be lanced so it can drain, but not sure how or where on the area to lance. Want to see if I can meet my vet. somewhere on Wed. and have her check it. My vet. only treats equine but I think I can get her to look at the chicken if I meet her somewhere convenient for her. Tues, tomorrow, is her 'day off'. I think the chicken needs a strong shot (s) of antibiotics. I have penicillin but there is another Rx I have read mentioned on B.Y.C. that starts with a T -----? Which ? injected where ? how much ?. Help PLEASE ! Thank you !
