Hi can anyone advise me. My male peacock was attacked by a dog last nite. He has a huge hole above his leg it's not bleeding and he has some puncture wounds in neck . What's the best procedure to help him I did cover him last nite to keep him warm and he seems to be breathing normal.i know to flush wounds but what's best to clean with? And I was going to give him a shot of Tulane 200 1 cc every other day for 3 shots.

Please can anyone advise me if right or wrong thank you so much

Keep him warm, dry and in a quiet spot with food and water available.
The wounds can be cleaned with saline and the antibiotic shots will help.

I remember reading last year about an injured peacock from a dog attack. He didn't make it, I think shock did him in. I think they are very susceptical to it. Good luck in treating him.

I think Chicky4 is talking about a dog attack to a peacock that happened on my property. He didn't acutally die from shock but probably to internal bleeding. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8033019&p=758337&hilit=peacock#p758337

Keeping him in a quiet and dark area with food and water on offer is a good start. I'd also go with the antibiotics. Be careful with painkillers or anything else that does thin the blood, though. I think by giving Metacam too early I might have killed my patient.
