Hi Athena, Mac & Remy
DAY 15
How are u sweetie? Today, we will continue with bleeding emergencies.
BEAK INJURY
A beak injury is an emergency because a bird needs both her upper & lower beak to eat & preen properly. Beak injuries often occur after a bird has been attacked by another bird, after flying into a windowpane or a mirror, or a run-in with an operating ceiling fan. (i have a bad habit of chewing on my cage bars & have chipped/broken the tip of my beak several times.) Infectioncan set in rrather quickly if a beak is fractured or punctured or partially missing. U may wish to apply a mixture of alum & cold water to reduce bleeding. Keep the bird calm & quiet. It may be necessary to apply direct pressure to stop the bleeding, using a towel or direct pressure. Observe the bird for at least an hour after bleeding stops. If a piece of beak is dangling, it will need to be carefully removed. If blood loss is considerable or if ur bird seems weak & unsteady, call ur vet's office immediately for further instructions. A bird with a beak injury is usually reluctant to eat or drink. This could last for just a few days or a week or even longer. Try offering softer foods, food cut into very small pieces or warmed food.
NAIL. INJURY
Torn nails may need prompt attention in order to prevent further injury. Ragged nails can catch on items in the cage or on items throughout the house. Remove or trim the part of the nail that is injured. Apply styptic stick/powder or cornstarch to the toenail. If the bleeding does not stop, seek veterinary attention.
We should be able to finish up procedures on bleeding tomorrow. Have a great day & see u tomorrow!
Love & a vote
Tia
