When something goes wrong with a bird, it can deteriorate into a crisis very quickly. It has been one of those weeks for me again!
With 9 birds in my personal flock and plenty of rescue work; it’s getting to the point where not only does my vet know my birds and I (without having to look up our names in his computer), but I think he could almost tell you my star sign, favourite colour and what everyone in my family had ..
I went to a bird club meeting today where the speaker, a long time vet technician, spoke about emergency critical care. I wanted to hone my skills. She offered ideas in splinting and portable heat sources that I was not aware of. This topic differs from basic first aid care in that these are instances where it is not a question of if you need to bring your bird to the vet, but how soon can you get there.
