Hi Jasper
DAY 13
How are u sweetie? Sorry no blog yesterday, of course it was mom's fault! It was G-son Sammy's 7rh birthday, AND mom got my sissy tickets to Theresa Caputo's live show yesterday (The Long Island Medium)! It was almost 10pm when they FINALLY got home, plus I demanded some mommy time! She actually did try to do a blog after I went night-night, but she ended up sleep-blogging! She did a short blog but only posted it on my page!
Today, we will discuss:
ANIMAL BITES
Bites can be life-threatening emergencies. Animal bites not only cause the obvious puncture wounds but also the potential for serious internal injuries & fractures resulting from the "crush" of the animals jaws. Serious infections can develop from being bitten or from being scratched. Once bacteria gain entry into the body from even a very small puncture wound, bacteria can spread via the bloodstream & develop rapidly into a life-threatening situation. The first 48 hours after an animal bite is a critical time period
Cat bites are a little more serious. The PASTEURELLA MULTOCIDA bacteria, which is present in cat's mouths & on their claws, can cause death within 24 hours if not properly treated. Anytime a bird is attacked by an animal, it should be taken to the vet immediately.
SIGNS
Sometimes bite marks can be seen, but often are hidden by the feathers. Look for general signs of trauma, which could include blood, matted feathers, "droopy" wing, unsteadiness on the perch or an unusual increase of feathers in the cage or on the house floor.
HOME TREATMENT
There is really no effective home treatment. Call ur vet's office & transport immediately.
VETERINARY TREATMENT
Your bird will first checked for stability, & if she appears severely injured & in shock, treatment will begin immediately. If ur pet appears stable, a complete physical exam will be given first, followed by appropriate treatment, which will probably include administration of antibiotics. Diagnostic tests may include x-rays to examine for bone & internal injuries & a blood test.
PREVENTION
Be careful & use common sense when keeping birds with other pets, especially dogs & cats. If u do have ur bird out of her cage when other pets are around, supervise them closely.
Yikes! What a frightening subject! An equally scary topic tomorrow...bleeding! See u tomorrow sweetie!
Love & a vote
