    My gobbler got attacked be a dog and got really messed up he has some puncture wounds and a big gash on his back to the bone. He doesn't have any broken bones or punctures on his abdomen where it could have damaged organs..he chased the dog off for 1/2 mile. I cleaned him up and superglued the middle part of the big gash together and gave him some electrolytes and probiotics. I also gave him a shot of penacillian. Any other suggestions or ideas?

    You've done all that you can do for the moment. Keep him quiet & warm..seperated from others. You may see your vet about water soluable wide spectrum antibiotics. Make sure he's drinking.
