Ok I have a young pigeon with a broken shoulder, at first I didn't think so but it is hanging way down and she isn't moving it. I stopped the bleeding. It is a little swollen in the joint. I don't know what happened to it could have been a hawk not sure but I do know this that wing is going to have to come off one way or another. My next dilema is asking the vet to take it off and then finding a home for her. She still squeaks she is so cute just as sweet as can be. I am wondering if I can get the vet to take it off for free as I have never asked her for anything like this before. Should I start her on antibiotics? I have amoxicillian 250 mg capsules. I am just scared that if she has an infection starting from her injury that it could do her in. She is very thin as well. Only weighing in at 228 grams. Keel is starting to get sharp. If anyone here wants a pigeon after she has her wing taken off let me.
