If one zoom into your first photo, looks as if he is starting to get pigeonpox. There's no cure for that, he will just need supportive care for the next couple of weeks until the virus has shed. Can you post a photo of his beak?

The metronidazole dose for canker will be 40-50 mg once daily. So if you get the tablets, you will need to split them to the right size. Best way to give will be to put the piece deep inside his beak for him to swallow.
Thank you for all your support. Unfortunately , he got a seizure and sad I could save him. I'm sorry

I'm sorry you lost him. I think he must have been sick and that's why he was caught. Thanks for trying. XX

You did a caring thing . Coconut oil and turmeric sound interesting esp for a non predator wound.

If a predator like a cat caught him the bacteria from the mouth can move in the blood quite quickly, it is hard to treat unless done right away .

You have a big heart, sorry for the loss.
