Hi,
Sorry to hear about the attack on your goose. I am not a veterinarian and therefore am not qualified to answer some of your questions. I would try to find a veterinarian to help care for your goose, but I am aware that poultry vets are difficult to find sometimes. If you cannot find a poultry vet, try calling Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital at 970-297-5000, they have some veterinarians that are familiar with poultry. Good luck.
