I wanted to share this so others would know...I might be the last one to find out and everyone already knew, but oh well...I'm going to share anyway. About 3 weeks ago my German Shepherd puppy (80 lb puppy) was inadvertently let out unsupervised with my hens and decided to play tag with one of my RIRs. It didn't look good for my girl. He ended up putting 3 large holes in her skin and i could see her insides, it was very disturbing. He also pulled several feathers off in those areas. 2 holes on her neck and one on her side. I thought for sure she was a goner but I had to try and help her however I could. I found the Vetesyl Hydro Gel spray at my feed store...$33 for an 8oz bottle and some of the people there questioned as to why in the world I would pay that much to help a chicken...they just didn't get it I guess. These are my layers, they feed my family, they are like pets to my children... Anyway, I treated her for 3 days and she is now 100% healed up with what look like new feathers growing...does that happen? Do they grow new feathers? So if you ever have bad wounds, I'd highly recommend the vetesyl... it's good for all creatures and is safe in the eye area.
