Help!

Noticed yesterday that one of my wee dudes have taken a big portion of fur and skin off his back, phoned vets and was told to separate him from other 3 and clean the area with cooled salt water and put sudocream on sore bit. Having cleaned him as vet told me I have noticed there is pus coming out of wound now and I'm not sure what best thing to do is? He is still eating and drinking and moving abut as normal any suggestions on what the best thing to do is? Any advice on how to treat his wound?

Can you get a second vet opinion? Otherwise, I'm not sure there's much you can do besides keep it very clean.

Good luck with him and keep us updated.

It's the main vets in my area. I'm going to phone vets on Monday and see if I could maybe get antibiotics for him hopefully it will start to get better don't like the thought that he is suffering.
