Bird hospital, 5.4.17

I spent my afternoon in the hospital ward, cleaning out and helping to administer medication. 
After moving out the birds, I cleaned the cage and put down clean newspaper, food and water. If the bird was showing signs of foot problems, I placed down a puppy pad on top.

Sadly I found a deceased pigeon in a cage, but this is the nature of working with sick animals.

A few had been admitted for broken wings, so I felt a pigeon’s wing to feel the break. Holding the pigeon under my arm, I lifted its neck and gave it 2 drops of metacam which is a pain reliever and anti inflammatory.

 A baby owl had been brought in, so I hand fed a chick to it.
