Hello all! Im Charlotte who looked after Roger the wood pigeon 18 months ago(who had been caught by a cat and then suffered with canker and sadly died of avian pox).
Im still working at a vets and take home any pigeons that need help. I currently have one wood pigeon with an injured wing and hopefully not to far from release, one rock pigeon who had wounds all over his body but now only has one cyst on his wing which is getting smaller, and last but not least I have two collared doves, one which was brought into the vets after being caught by a cat and is on baytril, the other we suspect fell out of its nest and whose mum/dad was killed by a car. Both collared doves are about 25-28days old. Theyre both eating solids fine now.
Really just saying hi! My pc hasnt been able to log on here for ages, hence my new name(used to be WildlifeVetToBe).

You sure have your hands full with all your little rescues, and you're doing a fine job caring for them.
Nice to see you back.
Hope all your babies will do great and be released soon (and make room for more rescues):p

Hi Charlotte

Such a shame poor Roger didn't make it, but sounds like you are getting into the thick of it with your little 'herd'. I'm wondering what this season will bring, as we are well into woodie and dove breeding time.

What's the story with the feral with wounds? Injury or disease?

Yes, my woodie is a european wood pigeon. I took the Rock Pigeon from the vets after being told he had a possible broken wing but that it should do fine on its own. Ive had the other vet i work with look at it and she found that he must of had wounds all over his back and under his wings but all of them have healed and he is now growing back his feathers. The only problem left with him is this cyst he appears to have on his right wing on what i would describe as his shoulder joint. He has been treated for it with Dexadreson and it has got smaller, but it is still there. Ill be taking him with me when I go to work tomorrow.
