Hi Jester
DAY 18
How are u sweetie? Today, we will cover BURNS.
Burns can be very serious & very painful to a bird. Shock & infection could possibly occur. Exposure to high temps (flame, hot liquids, steam or any hot object), electricity or chemicals can cause burns. Burns should be suspected if an area of the skin has a very inflamed, irritated appearance, or if the feathers are greasy or burnt. First, try & determine what type of burn ur bird has suffered. The type of burn determines the treatment that should be followed. If ur bird has been burned by HOT WATER, mist the burned area with cool water, or if a leg or foot, immerse the burned area in cool water to help relieve the pain. An antibiotic ointment should be applied. To avoid further damaging the feathers, this med should be either a water-soluble liquid,, spray or powder. Do not apply any oily or greasy substances, including butter, because these substances can damage the bird's feathers.
If the bird has been burnedby HOT GREASE, lightly coat the burned area with flour or cornstarch to help absorb the grease.
If the bird has been burned by ACID, such as toilet bowl cleaner or drain cleaner, gently flood the area with cool water to dilute the chemical, then lightly coat burned area with a paste of baking soda & water.
If the bird has been burned by an ALKALI SUBSTANCE, such as ammonia or lye, gently flood the area with cool water to dilute the chemical, then coat the burned area lightly with vinegar.
If the bird has been burned by an ELECTRICAL SOURCE, such as chewing on a power cord, first turn off the power & disconnect the cord. No home treatment is recommended. Birds suffering from burns may go into shock & will need prompt attention (shock-blog #11). Most burns are a true medical emergency & requires immediate vet attention. However, mild burns may be sprayed or flushed with cool water. These burns may be treated twice daily with small amounts of antibiotic ointment. Tomorrow, we will cover CONCUSSIONS & DIARRHEA. I hope u had a great day sweetie, see u tomorrow!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
Love & a vote
Tia
