EddiesMom15 Posted May 14, 2016 Share Posted May 14, 2016 The scourge of skwirls has struck in my backyard. Miss Lily got hold of a not-very-bright squirrel just a little while ago. It was trying to escape by running up a drainpipe between the garage and DH's stock tank that he collects rainwater in. Lily jumped up, bumping the pipe. Squirrel fell into the stock tank, climbed out, and took a leap directly into Miss Lily's jaws. There was some tussling on the ground, during which I was hollering "drop it". Squirrel finally escaped and ran up the nearest tree. During this, Miss Lily was bitten and/or scratched. She has what look like scratches on her muzzle, and a small open sore that I'm guessing might be a bite just below her right front wrist. I cleaned everything up, and bandaged the open wound with bacitracin, covering it with a gauze square and vetrap. There appears to be no more bleeding from her snout, but she is licking her lips a lot, leading me to believe she may have been scratched on her gums. She is currently wearing her muzzle with poo guard, giving me lots of stinkeye. Owner has been notified, and said good for Lily! She is current on shots. Is there anything else I should do?
