Goat attacked by dog ...

New here, but I need some advice. I have a 13 month old Nubian wether who was used as a chew toy by the neighbor's pit bull. (Won't even go there about the dog, except to say that my shotgun and ammo are now in easy reach.)

He has a perfect raised bite mark on his throat -- huge bruise, very little broken skin. The pit had him by the throat. Also has some bruising to his hindquarters.

I've slathered furazone on what scratch marks there are and I'm going to give him a tetanus booster tomorrow when I have some help for the goat wrestling session I know will be required. But how concerned should I be about the bruising? And can I give him anything for the obvious soreness? I have oral bute, but I wasn't sure if that would help or hurt.

He's a lucky boy, IMHO ... if it weren't for the horse, who's a little bit attached to "her" goats, the goat probably would have been dead by the time I ran the 100 yards to him. The mare left a perfect horseshoe print on the dog's rear end.
