My buddy has a buck with swelling on its brain from fighting. It is temporarily blinded by the swelling. What are his treatment options?

Edit-got the answer thanks-Dex and penicillin daily

Jon, had this happen a few times already this year and the dex and pen are the way to go. Nuflor is not a bad option either, good at fighting bone infections. Because I do have the pen space I always place the animal in a pen alone, distresses them and then I don't worry about him getting picked on.

Good news! This morning my friend Mike called and said he can no longer give the buck shots because he can see him now. He is going to turn him out in a pen by himself today
