My girlfriend came home from shift tonight around midnight to a pair of eyes darting across our driveway with what she thought was one of our ducks, gave chase to find our female black Australian swan in a heap with puncture wounds to the upper neck and head and struggling to breath.. We stabilized her (stopped the bleeding) and cleaned the wounds to the best of our abilities. She's currently in our bathroom on some towels, severely shaken up kind of rolling her neck around picking her head up every now and then and her breathing is sporadic and labored it's so sad to watch is there anything we should be doing other than hoping she makes it through the night and seeking veterinary help asap tomorrow morning? Any help is appreciated thanks

As long as the wound is cleaned and you have her stabilized, keeping her comfortable is about all you can do. That fox certainly has expensive tastes. I hope she pulls through. Do you have a topical ointment, like Neosporin without the pain reliever?
