Hi first some background info. I have a rooster that’s two years old almost. He was attacked 8 days ago. His comb was bitten off, the ends of his wattles bitten and the worst wound is a hole on his upper back/lower neck that’s around 1 inch wide and almost two inches long. His skin is lose around the wound and cannot be closed. Not enough skin left. I gave him pain med, oral antibiotics, flushed the wound with novalsan everyday and kept it covered with gauze. He is off all meds now. He is bright, alert, roosting, good poo and is fighting me when I try to treat him. The wound doesn’t smell bad, No pus, it is getting a dark black/red crusty thin scab maybe in spots. I didn’t flush it for the last two days and that’s when it got crusty. Maybe that was a mistake. The wound looks terrible to me. Especially the area with no arrows. (See below) The dark brown area. There’s no loose material. Maybe I need to probe more. I don’t know. Here’s my two questions. 1 Getting the wound to granulate has been very difficult. What can I treat it with to promote faster granulation? There is very little to no muscle there. The wound is a pocket that doesn’t drain well. I feel that it either needs a drain put in (and I can’t obtain a drain tube) or I need to stop flushing it because it was too wet all the time. Which leads to question 2 What do I do? Please advise. Thanks in advance!
