Exclamation Emergency - need help!!!!!

my poor Num Num has broken his lower mandible, I don't know how, I'm balling and can barely type.

His mandible is half off, and I can't do anything for him.

the nearest emerg vet is 4 hours away.

I've given him Meticam, put a heat lamp on him, and given Quick stop where it is torn.

if he makes it by morning I'll be lucky.

is there anything else I can do????????

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

Omg how the hell? Just try to remain calm it may look worse than it actually is. Don't let him see you panic it will make him panic. Sounds like you're doing the right thing so far, except for the panicking. I hope he will be okay. Blood makes everything look like a crime scene...once he's more cleaned up you can assess the situation. Hopefully someone with more experience with that will chime in.......???

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

I think Safari, my Senegal had something to do with this, Num Num and Pearl have been mating, and right now Num Num is highly protective with his cage. He probably tried to bite Safari thru the bars and she grabbed his beak, while he was climbing on it.

right now he's walking around the cage, god he's tuff!, his lower jaw is hanging, and he's moving around.

I gave him some water, but no food.

Omg! Yikes... I am so sorry. Your Senegal can definitely inflict that kind of damage. Does Safari have any blood on him? I hope your cockatiel will be okay.

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

Yes when two happen in a row both with beak damage there's a culprit! Best keep them supervised or remove Safari out of the room!

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

ok, so the bleeding has stopped which is a huge relief!!
first thing tomorrow morning we are making an appt. at the vets.

Kaladisa- I'm really not one to panic, I get upset, like I'm suppose to when I see my birds jaw hanging, and blood everywhere.
My daughter is 11 and she is balling knowing this is not good, but she was there to help me.
I've seen plenty here with breeding and gotten use to plenty, but this I've never encountered before. I know my baby is in pain, and I still don't know how this happened.

nope, no blood on Safari.

We have been over his cage with a fine tooth comb, found a little bit of blood at the bottom of the cage on two of the bars, then up further, then lots on the perch he was on
I was in the bird room feeding my other birds, and my daughter went into our bedroom to feed my pet birds, which is where Num Num is, along with Safari and others.
Num Num was in his cage with Pearl, but Safari was out.
just before dinner I checked on the birds and they were fine.
right after dinner, we went to feed them and found him injured.
