Help needed for sick quail

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm desperately in need of some help. One Sunday my dog managed to flip my avory over letting my quail loose. We found them today unfortunately 2 died one male seems fine one is moving his head to let left when he eats. Another is all puffed up but my only girl left is really sick all puffed up eyes closed wobbly when trying to walk refusing water or food do sent put up a fight when handled. Right now she is on my chest under a blanket as the boys won't huddle with her not sure what to do

Your quail have been lost, thirsty and hungry for 4 days now so get over to the emergency forum and maybe the quail forum as soon as possible to get the survivors some help:

I hope they make it. And if they do, is it possible to keep the aviary in a place where the dog can't get to it?

I agree with NorthFLChick.    At first they were probably in shock from the attack. They need quiet and warmth . You may be able to tempt them now with   mashed hard boiled eggs, cooked, warm oatmeal, plain yogurt, even watermelon if available - to get some fluid in them.  Do see what the emergency folks  have to say.  I hope they will recover.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
