Quoting .Colleen.:" We used topical anitbiotic and peroxide to kill the infection Worked great and no vet needed. We do the rabies shot, it's the law here."
We did that at first, but he keeps fighting and now the infection is down in the joint so we can not treat it ourselves any longer. The vet said it is lucky we were able to keep it under control thus far. He hasn't put any weight on his foot in over a month. He has multiple bites on him.
Hopefully with him now being neutered the fighting will cease or slow down. We actually haven't seen him for 3+ months before this, we thought he had found a new home or had died. He is only here at "home", I believe, because he is injured.
