On January 1, a pigeon was picked up from the garbage dump, apparently someone undernourished.
Goggle, no tail, both wings are broken, and the impression is that one is already fused (or dislocated).
There was a small wound under the second wing and the wing did not move at all.
And next to the wound, a tuft of feathers with gore. There was no blood anywhere else.
Ranku and this incomprehensible tuft of feathers were smeared with levomikol.
The pigeon pecked well, at first I held his head to him, and then myself from the bowl. Feathers began to grow on the back.
I got up on my paws. One wing does not work, but when leaning on it, it leans, the second just hangs and it’s just below it a wound, right on this joint.

So today after a night I found on a towel on which he sleeps a huge stain of blood.
She examined the pigeon and saw that blood was flowing from beneath the sintered shred, it was flowing abundantly.
Now they filled the wound with hydrogen peroxide and even applied more bandages moistened with peroxide to the wound, on top a piece of cellophane (for now! To your advice!) And bandaged it with a soft elastic bandage.

The questions are as follows:
Is it possible to bandage a dove around the calf? Will it suffocate?

Warning a request for a photograph - I can’t take pictures with it yet, because if you lift the wing, blood starts to flow again.

But I don’t have to imagine, I did it, that's why I write. I went through a lot with my little birds, out of five, only one was healthy, the rest had to be treated and unfortunately not without loss. Now there are four of them and all are healthy.

Asy, I am always for friendship and peace. I also accept criticism in my address no offense.



Bleeding from the nose Bleeding from the nose is provoked by ruptures of the walls of the vessels of the nasal cavity due to bruises, strokes, wounds, hypertension. It should be differentiated with sinusitis. The main symptoms include bloody nosebleeds, wheezing,


Bleeding To stop the bleeding in birds, it is better to use 3% hydrogen peroxide. To do this, moisten a thin swab with a solution and carefully treat it with a bleeding area of ​​the skin. More caustic substances should not be used. It should be remembered that

Parrot blood in the cage: causes

Any blood on the body of a parrot is a consequence of external or internal damage, and the sooner you find out, the more timely the help will be.

Common causes for internal bleeding are tumors inside the body or mechanical injuries due to eaten items (for example, a parrot can glue the same paper clip with food).

So, with damage to the intestines by hard and sharp objects, the appearance of blood in the litter cannot be excluded, although other reasons for this phenomenon can also be attributed to:

  • helminthic invasion,
  • defeat of the protozoa
  • damage to the skin of the cloaca,
  • bacterial infection.

From the beak

The regular appearance of blood from the beak of a parrot may indicate that it lacks certain micro and macro elements in food. In addition, cases of bruised beak are frequent, as a result of which bloody discharge appears.

An accurate determination of the cause is extremely important for its successful elimination, but in any case, first of all, you will have to somehow stop the blood flow.

You can do this in the following way:

  • buy Miramistin in a pharmacy (regular) and rinse the bird's beak with it (you can use a pipette to drip the drug onto the damaged area of ​​the beak several times a day),
  • washing the beak, use a cotton swab to apply Levomikol to the affected area.
These procedures should be performed until the bleeding is completely eliminated, 2-3 times a day.

Conventional cereal mixtures are not suitable for forced feeding, but baby cereals are quite suitable for maintaining strength. They are given warm by instilling a syringe in a crack near the beak.

With a complete refusal of food, you can give 10-15 ml per day, dividing the portion into equal parts (sick parrots are fed every 2-3 hours, 1-1.5 ml of the mixture at a time). If the bird eats, but very little, then it can simply be fed 2-3 times a day.

The consistency of the porridge should allow it to freely exit the syringe, and one of the main tasks of the owner is to control the swallowing movements of the parrot (he should not choke). After feeding, the feathered bird is returned to the cage, next to which a lamp is installed: it will help the feathers dry after feeding. Of course, eating should precede the treatment of the damaged beak, otherwise the parrot will simply eat up on medications, which, by the way, may not have the best effect when ingested.

The appearance of blood on the beak can also be explained by the bursting of the vessel inside the nose. In this case, the blood will come out with a certain regularity, and in order to stop it, you will have to use the ampoule Dicinon (5%), instilling the drug mixed with boiled water in the beak, twice a day (usually a three-day course of such procedures is enough).

The vitamin course will not hurt the budgie, only with vitamin C. Any liquid vitamins for birds that add to the drinker at the rate of 5 drops per 50 ml of water will do. You can also pour parrots and a rosehip broth, slightly sweetened with honey.

All this strengthens the blood vessels, and if the cause of the bleeding is really in the bursting vessel of the nose, then such a drink should help.

From the wounded foot

A parakeet can injure a foot both in the cage and when moving around the room, but most often the appearance of blood on it is explained by a broken or poked nail.

To stop bleeding from the claw, it is enough to apply a dry potassium permanganate crystal to the paw or treat the wound with Furacilin, which does not bake, but at the same time disinfects well.

Some poultry farmers also use folk remedies for washing, among which the most popular are decoction or infusion of chamomile. This plant has good antiseptic properties and can be used even with suppuration.

It is better not to use iodine at all, or use it only once, immediately after the injury, and in the future use only gentle drugs.

Usually, wounds on feathered legs heal quickly enough, the main thing is that infection does not get in and suppuration does not begin.

From under the wing

Blood under the wing of a budgie can appear during the period of changing feathers (in this case it is not enough) or as a result of a bird getting injured. In the first case, it is important to review the diet of the parrot and make sure that it has enough nutrients (the mineral stone must always be in the cage).

The hemp remaining after the old feathers is recommended to gently pull out with tweezers, since it is they that do not allow new feathers to grow and cause blood to appear even with a slight wing flap.

The affected areas should be treated with warm chlorhexidine and dried a little (possibly using Tsamaksa powder). Then you can perform the following procedure: leaf aloe, without skin, scroll through a meat grinder and add to the resulting slurry a few drops of peppermint oil, apply to the affected area.

This procedure is performed at night, and in the morning we wash the wound surface again, but instead of powdering, we use Betadine. After the composition has dried, apply the same mixture with aloe. If there is no inflammation, then after 3-4 days you will forget about the existing problem. A wound under the wing can also indicate an attack by another pet, such as a cat. These animals are not only able to scratch your parrot, but also bite its body, so first of all pay attention to the depth and severity of the wound.

Any external damage, especially if there is a suspicion of contact with pathogens, must first be treated with hydrogen peroxide or alcohol-free iodine, and then apply a bandage (only not too tight).

Redness or blueing of a certain area on the skin indicates a feathered abrasion or bruise, and no antiseptic will help here.

To alleviate the condition of the budgie, you can treat the bruise with a special trauma gel that has painkiller, hemostatic and antiseptic effects.

What to do if the parrot is bleeding from the anus

It often happens that blood appears from the anus of a bird, and it looks quite horrific. In this case, it is recommended to use Dicinon or aminocaproic acid, which is injected into the chest muscle of a budgie (just insert the needle of an insulin syringe 1–2 mm deep).

The amount of medication used can be in the range of 0.04-0.06 ml. If after an injection of Dicinon no visible improvement in the condition of the bird is observed, it is possible to inject aminocaproic acid, adhering to the same dosage.

Given that these drugs have a different principle of action, you should not exclude the possibility of simultaneous use.

If the bleeding does not stop, or you still do not have access to the necessary medicines, try adding an ice cube or frozen berry wrapped in a handkerchief to the cesspool. Regardless of the age and breed of the feathered, the duration of the procedure should not exceed several minutes, otherwise it is quite realistic to catch a parrot and add problems to yourself.

The feathers stuck from the blood must be carefully soaked in warm water or peroxide, but in no case should they be pulled, as this will cause the bird unpleasant sensations.

No matter where the blood appears on the parrot’s body, this is a serious reason to think about its state of health. It is good if there is a veterinary clinic near the house, but you can provide first aid to your pet yourself.

Try to stop and dry the wound with peroxide - it will take a long time to get wet (you got a compress, it’s better not to do it - your skin will just get wet under polyethylene).
Pigeon is a plentiful drink to restore fluid loss (you can salt water or dilute saline solution or 1/3 Ringer's solution with water and offer as a drink)

Dicinone ampoule recommend a drop in such cases, but I have not given it even once, wait for experienced consultants to advise.

Right! Dicinon! How I forgot! Thanks.
I can’t dry yet - a very large wound surface.
Now I run off to the pharmacy and make (if he is still alive.) A large tomponade with solcoseryl - it can at least somehow begin to drag on the edges.

Darina writes:

Treat the wound with chlorhexidine, then a betadine solution and a levomekol ointment. Most likely you still need an antibiotic. Do not mix peroxide and dicinone at the same time. It is better to moisten the cotton wool with ampoule dicinone, press it down and wait until the blood stops. You can give more dicinone in the beak of 0.1 ml.

Added after 2 minutes 4 seconds:
And the wings somehow need to be fixed so that they do not hang out and that the wound can be treated. To the doctor in any way? The tire would be imposed on the fractures.

Added after 3 minutes 8 seconds:
Feathers around the wound are best trimmed.

From the very beginning, from January 1, the wound was treated with betadine, and then with levomikol. Apparently the sticky tuft of feathers worked like a tompon, and when softened, the wound opened and bleeding started.
I also give an antibiotic from 1 day amoxicillin (1tab per 5ml and from this 0.5ml per beak).
We try to stop peroxide, but it oozes again and again.

It is amazing how he survived on the street with such injuries and with an abundance of cats in our yard!
. It's a shame if you now die from blood loss.

There is a problem with wings. if I fix it, it falls on its side and beats trying to get up - it's a classic swivel.
I won’t go to the vet, sorry. If this "half-eaten" survives, he doesn’t have to fly, I will leave him with me, I’m not the only one

It’s just the first time I’m faced with wounds opening a week later!
