Only 4 vets in the whole city and I went to the best vet. The other ones are for dogs and cats only. In my country people don't own pet much. and the few ones that do; have cats. So all vets focus on cats and dogs only. I will try to call and search again. Insha'alla I'll find one

in this case, a quiet draft free small cage, covered on 3 sides with a towel on the bottom only with his food and water.

this is an extreme emergency and i'm terribly sorry to say but the chances don't look good for him. but i will pray for him, keep him in my thoughts, whatever you like. i am hoping so much that he gets better. you and him hang in there!

however, injuries that extreme, i am not sure what else the vet would be able to do for him if you do not have avian vets in your country. i'm hoping for the best, and try to keep him pain free and feed him lots of his favourite foods to try to keep him eating and try to make sure he is as comfortable as possible.
Dally is correct, do not give him a heating pad.
there is not much you can do, but wait and see, unfortunately.
it is very difficult to watch an animal suffer, without knowing what to do.

I would leave him be for now, don't try and remove the blood, that may cause pain.

you may want to try and see if he will take a FEW DROPS of water, no more.
I would try that every 30-60 minutes....this really doesn't sound good at all, I'm very sorry.
thank you, and thank you all so much I really appreciate it so much. I gave him some water and he had just few tiny sips. I'll keep giving him by the hour.

Thank you so much, your kind words and hugs help a lot

Oh dear, my heart is breaking for you and your bird! I am so very sorry this happened to him.
Like someone else said, this is an extremely serious injury. Did the vet not suggest he stay in hospital for care?
Keeping you in my thoughts. HUGS!!

Re: My Cockatiel is bleeding and might die. Please please help me

Hope your bird pulls through, Ned. Birds are so fragile, and the sight of blood can make you distraught with worry over their welfare. Having recently had a 'tiel with a pierced wing from a cockatoo bite, I can't begin to imagine how distressing it would be to be caring for a bird with a head injury. The lack of avian vets I can understand, having not lived within 6 hours drive from one for years. I'd be surprised if there were many dogs in KSA, what other animals are kept as pets besides birds and cats?

If your bird is OK after a day or two, he'll probably pull through as long as infection is kept at bay. Did vet give any antibiotics? I'd be worried that any infection in a head wound would affect the bird very quickly. Also, if he does pull through he'll still have to be kept very quiet as balance and flying ability may be affected so you'd not want him crashing when injuries not healed.

All the best for your bird, Ned.
