Re: broken wing

The vet was not available yesterday...i am trying to get todays appointment..and i have kept the parrot in a small basket so that it cant move..when kept in its cage it tries to come out and when taken out it tries to go back in...its not still most of the times..always trying to do something..and about masking tape i am afraid i might hurt it more so i think the vet would do it more correctly...i just hope it gets well soon..i will keep you guys updated..thankyou so much.

Re: broken wing

The wrap is not a fix...its meant to stabilize the wing to prevent further injury until u can get to the vet.. Broken bones moving around can cut tissue, nerves, blood supply etc....
pardon me for adding ......... GGRRRRRRRRRRR

Re: broken wing

Hopefully it's just a sprain or dislocation. His left shoulder looks kind of dislocated to me, but then again, it's hard to tell with birds unless X-rays are done. And to be fair guys, the OP's username suggests s/he is from the Middle East, where it wouldn't be uncommon to refer to animals by the term "it" rather than by name or gender. Ring necks are also popular in that part of the world, which could further point to that. Then you've got my Mom who always refers to our non-human friends by name or gender and considers them to be members of the family, EXCEPT in front of other people -_-. Freaking ticks me off, man! "You should see Robyn's parrotlet. It's really clever and it is almost like a part of the family!" I swear, Mom, stop trying to look cool in front of your friends!

Re: broken wing

All bs aside I was more GRRRed over failure to stabilize the wing... broken or not. We all should have a birdie first aid kit... Blue 3m tape top of the list, hemostats, gauze, peroxide, small scissors, and a blood clotting agent should be the basics. Murphys law gets all of us at times.

Re: broken wing

Get an avian specialist to help with him, there is something wrong if your bird cannot fly. I feel very bad for your bird as he looks very sick, I hope he gets better soon
