Pigeon attacked by hawk


One of my birds was caught by a coopers hawk. I scared it off with a slingshot. It seems to be doing better now. It had blood coming out of it's break and cere. Lacerations/punctures on sides. It can walk but doesn't want to. Looks like it will fly again. Hopped out of my hands at one point and flew down. Now it's been sitting.

I put peroxide on the wounds. It's not interested in food or water. I assume i should give it amoxicillin. But should i wait for it to start eating before i give drugs? Should I hand feed it?

Rather start with the meds immediately. Amoxycillin dosis will be 12 mg per 100 gr birdweight twice daily. Keep him somewhere quiet. If he is not eating by himself after 2 days, then handfeed him.
