my parrot is injured plsss help
 
Hello
I have a seven yearz old pet in green color it is basically an indian ring parrot.. I love him so much n it is everything to me I cant just hold my tears right now. Sorry fr the typos. My parrot wwas hit by a ceiling floor while it was flying in my room. It accidently flew to the tv lounge and hit by the fan. I switched it off n waited for it it landed on the floor gasping its eyes were coal black with pain. I picked him n found that his one leg was injured there was no bleeding yet it had a hard time moving the toes. I made him feel relaxed by making him drink water . I didnt know wat to do I made a paste of oil n turmeric to cover his wound. I didnt let it move ananywhere n kept it on bed for three hours. It was normal thought I found that his leg's feathers were gone I looked closely oh gosh his skin was bleeding. I dabbed some cotton in the paste n applied on the wound. I gave it a lot if fruits to eat n it eated normally. It lost balance because of injured foot so I prepared a soft pillow myself tearing my pillow n stuffing the polyster in a cushion cover. I fixed it on its cage n it could sit properly on it. I didnt sleep the first night I kept crying n prayed to god for my parrot's heAlth I could feel its pain........
The next day I tried calling A vet nobody was available. I had to treat my parrot myself I checked it.. wound was not as severe as it was before. My parrot could nt hold on the perch when I placed it . I took it back to the cage n prepared the fresh mixture by adding one spoon of turmeric to two spoon of oil. I applied the lukewarm paste in the woung n let my pet sleep in my room for three hours. I checked on it again.. it was now trying to mive its toes n I was happy my med was working. I cleaned the wound.. the leg was red but blood was changing color from red to black. On the third day I applied polyfax on the wound n noticed that my pet was comfortable. There is no vet available today n i still have to treat my parrot at home. Pls suggest me somthing. I cant apply ny chemical ointment because he touches the leg with beak... m so worried n exhausted.. I could nt sleep properly I m giving it healthy fruits to eat n thanks to god it is eating very well but I m depressed I cant sleep properly. I dont leave my pet alone n cant do it until its recovered. It us sleeping on the mattress in the cage which I keep beside my bed. I keep checking on it the whole night n keep feeding it with pomegranate every four to six hour at night.my pet us healthy bt unable to walk due to injured foot:green:

The best thing you can do is find an avian vet asap. Could you give us your rough location so we can help you find one?

One thing you can apply in the meantime is fresh-cut Aloe-Vera to soothe it. But you need to get him to a vet as soon as possible. Good luck, I hope he recovers. :) also I wouldn't be putting oil into any open wounds it could cause a serious infection. Are you located in South Asia?

Can you post a picture? Is it the foot or the leg? If the blood is black, it is normally clotting and scabing which is good. See if he wiggles his toes when you touch it to see if its broken or not.

Re: my parrot is injured plsss help
 
It sounds like you have been doing the right things, although I am not sure you can find an aloe plant like Kalidasa suggested.....if it does not appear that its legs or wings were broken, your bird is probably just bruised and sore.....it would be a good thing to keep it from flying for a few days and you could carefully move it's sore toes, just to be sure they or the leg is not broken.....

I understand about the vet not being available, but like KC mentioned, if one is available, you should try to take your bird to a vet who is familiar with birds.....

Good luck.....

I dont let him fly or move. I haven't heard of the plant can you tell me where to get it n how to use it. He is bruised because wounds can be seen changing color easily.

He doesnt wiggle his toes but tries to move them. He can sense my touch on the toes.

I will have to get aloe vera from the farm. M not applying oil alone m mixing it with turmeric to stop the infection n heal the wound. I can see some improvements already

The aloe plant releases a sap/liquid that helps promote wound healing, but it is not critical to the bird's recovery. Check to see if you can find a product called Neosporin cream.....it comes in tubes, both as a cream and as an ointment.....the cream can be rubbed into the skin of an open wound while the ointment is petroleum based and is better suited to keep moisture out of a wound while providing the same antibiotics to the wound.....asking at a pharmacy or health clinic might get you the name of a product that is available locally, if Neosporin is not available.....

Since it sounds like your IRN just received a scrape/slight wound, watching it to be sure it does not get infected may be the best thing, because it sounds like the bird was very lucky.....

Your bird will remember this encounter with the fan, but you need to be very careful about its flying around ceiling fans.....if it were to get scared or excited and fly off, while the fan is running, it might not remember as quickly.....

You might want to feed less liquid fruits, and a scrambled or hard boiled egg would be good for him, then back to his regular diet, I think.....

Ok u will apply neosporin today . Will it harm my bird if he licks or eat the medicine because I have mentioned he touches his toes n leg with beak that was the reason for my not applying the ointment at the first place. I am so tensed atm. Do you think he will be able to walk again? Yes you are right he is lucky he is so dear to me. I cant tell u how much pain I have been through all these days.

Re: my parrot is injured plsss help
 
While the ointment version will not kill a bird, I believe it will give it runny poop.....with the cream, you rub it into the skin or cover it with a bandage, but your feathered friend does not sound like it needs any bandages.....the cream well promote healing while keeping the injury moist and not dried out.....some birds will pick at drying injuries because the skin develops a scab/dried blood and it often bothers birds and they pick at drying injuries.....

The Neosporin has a mild pain reliever in it also.....just be gentle when rubbibg it into the injury.....

I suggest a vet visit. I have found a few links that may help you to find an avian vet near you, yes you are correct there aren't many in your country. A regular vet may have to do in this case. I hope this is helpful to you and your birdie, and I hope he feels better soon.

I don't think parrots get fevers, and someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Their natural temperature is much warmer than a humans. If he walked over to you he's probably a little better. I know it's hard to find an avian vet in Pakistan, if not impossible. If you can't find a vet, than at least find someone with some experience with parrots. Is he standing on that leg yet?

Pls help.thank u:green:

You are welcome.....I checked and the Neosporin is a topical, triple antibiotic made from a combination of neomycin, polymyxin B sulfate, and bacitracin. It is not for internal use.....without knowing what else might be mixed with a compound, I could not get a doctor or pharmacist offer any suggestions.....

Since it has been several days since the injury, and as long as the open wound is kept clean, my veterinarian feels that your bird will recover nicely.....he did say that as long as there were no visible broken bones, there could be small cracks, but if your bird was moving around and moving its wings, there were probably just some serious bruises, like what you are seeing with his toes on the one foot.....he said that while no broken bone is evident, the nerves could have been seriously injured and stopped working for a while, however he thinks that they will return to normal after several weeks.....

My veterinarian said to tell you that it is not a good idea to let your bird sleep with you because it can be very easy for you to roll on the bird while you are sleeping and he said that you are very nice to try so hard to find the right medications for the bird.....he believes that from what you have said about how it is progressing, that you should continue to keep the bird quiet for another week, but without seeing the bird, it is hard to know how well it is recovering, but if you keep it from flying for another week, it should have a chance to get muck better.....

Good luck.....

Re: my parrot is injured plsss help
 
Just spoke to my vet and your Panadol is an acetaminophen based pain reliever that should be administered about 3 times a day, 4 to 5 hours apart, in doses of two drops at a time, for the next 4 days, then stopped if the bird shows improvement and less pain.....he does not think you should try to give the bird any other type of internal medication.....

Good luck.....

Not necessarily, but it is often easier when someone make a post for help, if one knows where they are located, as with your difficulty locating Neosporin.....it is no good to suggest something that you cannot find.....

Many people do not post their location, which is OK, but it helps to know when suggesting help, so I just figured out how to separate your name and when you mentioned you were from Faisalabad, I found this website Domestic Players - Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Official Website and thought that might be you.....

I looked at your pictures and other than the yellow from the tumeric, one cannot really tell, but your bird is holding the foot in the normal position he would use it and its toes are not drooping as they might from a broken bone.....as my veterinarian suggested, it might be that the leg was hit by the fan blade and is badly bruised, causing it to keep its foot held up.....

I know it would make you feel much better if your bird could be properly examined, but I think if you agree to keep him quiet for at least a week, he will begin to lower his foot.....

Thank u for keep posting here. The wound is not that little that was a small portion the same red wounded skin can be seen under his wing/feather above the affected leg.he opened his feathers today n I could see that his skin waz red all over.he might have hit badly by the blade beneath his left feather while he was flying around the fan. I hope he will recover soon.n will be able to walk on both feet like normal birds. He is a sort of naughty bird si anyone who knows him can understand his pain as he isnt speaking much these days except when he wanted me to see something or be close to him in the room.
As for the location I have updated my profile already. Some skin patches were peeling off from his toes expising a clear surface underneath. I am not concerned abt his leg now because wounds on the toes have healed m worried abt his skin under the feathers n wings on the left side. I believe proper n timely applications of oitment will heal these wounds.
Thanks once again for ur help. I will keep updating the thread from time to time abt his recovery
