Where are you located and I'll see if I can find a rehabber for you? You must turn it over.
OK, as for antibiotics I have Tetracycline Hydrochloride Soluble Powder that is supposed to be mixed in with the Ravens water.I have just read about the Raven you have found yesterday. How did you get on with your poor bird? Although it is difficult to make a diagnosis without having seen or having assessed the bird, it's symptoms sound familiar to me as I had last year a Carrion Crow with similar problems. In my experience, there are two common problems leading to this "neurological" problem (resulting in a bird walking / sitting on his hock joints and / or problems regarding opening and closing of it's claws), one is poisoning, the other is malnutrition, in particular calcium deficiency can lead to muscle weakness and spasms. In my experience, the vet visit won't help you a lot, as the condition is difficult but not impossible to treat, the bird will almost certainly be put to sleep. As I have said, treatment is not impossible and involves the usual things like a highly optimised diet with mineral supplements, antibiotics, mite and wormer treatment, physiotherapy (water treading), massage, the use of low perches with different diameters and lots of love. There might be also the need to tape initially the feet to get them in the correct position. Later on one would need a free flight aviary and company of it's own kind to avoid imprinting. It is quite a long way to go, but worth doing. I wish you good luck with your bird.
Well, first of all, if you have got access to a bird friendly (!!!) vet, or to an experienced rehabber, then obviously get the bird assessed before guessing around (there are still other diseases to consider, starting with a trauma and finishing with inherited bony fusions, the latter not being curable).OK, as for antibiotics I have Tetracycline Hydrochloride Soluble Powder that is supposed to be mixed in with the Ravens water.
As for the diet, it has eaten shelled peanuts (non salted) the yolk of a hard boiled egg and some of the white, he doesnt seem to prefer the white part. bought some millet, but he doesnt seem to excited about that either, can you possibly give me more options on the types of food that it will eat?
Could you possibly name some supplements that I could get, and how would I go about doing physiotherapy?
