Cat Bite

Just received a pigeon from a Queenspark resident, it had been caught by a Cat and has severe back injuries.
Have just treated it with antibiotics and anti inflammatory, as  well as antibacterial cream on the wound. 
Cat bites are notoriously bad for birds, they carry a bacteria which can cause Pasteurella septicaemia   which is fatal to birds if untreated.
So far the pigeon is responding well and is eating, time will tell about a full recovery.
