    We had a little misfortune lately with our newly acquired Livestock Guardian Dog/pup. He really needs a playmate, he leaves the chickens and **** guineas alone but really likes licking the feathers off of peafowl. Here is the before and after pics of today's misadventure.

    One major tear and a few puncture wounds.

    Applied Vetricyn Wound Care to clean what the dog didn't lick off and about a dozen stitches. A good
    coat of Blu-Kote after sewing him up.

    Finished off with an injection of Baytril and Zactran.

    He is looking much better now, he is out of shock, attentive, and eating well.

    He is eating like a hog and looking very attentive. We caught him today and he put up quite a fight, but we sprayed him down with more Vetricyn Wound Care.

    I am wondering if I should continue giving him Baytril?
