2 seem shaken up but uninjured from what I can tell.
One had a limp and a small puncture above his thigh but seems pretty good.
The fourth is pretty hurt. It has a patch about the size of your palm on its back between the wings of bare skin with a open wound about the size of a nickel and some small punctures around it. It also has some puncture wounds above its left leg. It hasn't stood and has its left leg splayed out. It seems it's broken or maybe dislocated? Didn't seem to hurt it when I moved the leg but it definitely is in shock.
It also seems to have gotten its uropygial gland bitten off, or severely damanged.
I'm mainly wondering what the affects of the damaged gland will be.
I'm hoping to take it to a vet tomorrow after work to get her checked out and for a second opinion.
I tried to clean the wounds with hydrogen peroxide, and then sprayed it with blu-kote. I was told to look for an antibiotic called LA-200 however the feed stores were out of stock. One did have a soluble powdered "duramycin-10 however I'm not sure that is what I need. I have the one inside a tote under a heat lamp.
I just have a bowl of water with it currently, should I give it food or should i wait until tomorrow?
Does anyone have any advice or similar experience with the damaged uropygial gland? Thanks
