HI TIA MARIA!!
Just stopping by with a V4U...Also I am campaigning for BOTM and here is one of my blogs..Today my campaign blog will be "Getting First-Aid for your cockatiel who injured itself during flight".....Because of their rapid flight, cockatiels can seriously injure themselves if they collide with an obstruction, such as a sheet of glass,which can end up with the cockatiel having a concussion.They should be taken to your avian veterinarian for them to make a prognosis..There is little that you can do with a concussed cockatiel, apart from placing it in a darkened environment, such as a traveling cage and leaving it alone in the hope that it will recover. Obviously, if the cockatiel has fractured its skull in the collision, then the chances of recovery are doubtful.Fractures of the wing and leg occasionally occur, although they are not common. The affected limb may show an obvious swelling at the site of the fracture, and the cockatiel will be clearly handicapped as a result. Seek the advice of an experienced avian veterinarian about splinting. Avian fractures heal within a few weeks if they are properly supported, although the bird may suffer some accompanying loss of function in the limb concerned. Cockatiels usually adjust well under these circumstances.....Hope this will be of some help in case your cockatiels does injure itself during flight...Have a nice Saturday...Many birdie wing hugs....Sam :o)
