Fawn Help.

I have a doe fawn that broke her leg about 4 weeks ago. 2 weeks ago she started walking on it again and now she is running on it occasionally . She is in a smaller area to limit her running.
She now has a lump on her lower jaw that I am 95% sure is fuso as I had another fawn with the same thing. She also in the last few days has started coughing but appears to be breathing fine. Due to her leg issue and a fear of re injuring it I plan on putting her out with MK in the morning. The plan was to give 1cc of nuflor, lance the abscess. Just curious if I should be giving her anything else while I have her out. She is bottle fed so I won't have to use a gun to do it.
Any input is appreciated.

Flush the abscess with hydrogen peroxide to clean it out..

no need to sedate her, give her Draxxin for the Fuso. I give 1/4cc to 1/2cc for a bigger fawn.

I'd prolly leave her sedated for 30 min to allow the Ketamine to quit working before reversing the MK. K has a reputation of hard reactions on reversal if it is still working in the system.
