My swedish duck has been injured. He has a broken wing and a puncture to the chest. He has so many feathers that I can't see the size clearly. On touch, it feels like it it is small but bleeding a lot. I've put pressure on it to relieve it.

I have strapped his wing using a scarf.

He is traumatised. Won't lift his head (pictured) He tried to eat some peas but spat them out as if the muscles don't work. He keeps salivating too.

How's he's doing? What was the puncture caused from? Where exactly on the chest? It might be deep if it is actively bleeding and a vet is most likely your only option.

He is definitely perkier but doesn't appear to drink unless I give it to him. Still havent got him to eat much. Only crushed mealworms in water. I'm wondering if he has broken his collar bone as there is a mass at the base of his neck. Have you seen this before?

He has a small puncture wound to his chest but that has stopped bleeding. It is is neck which concerns me the most. He has some movement but really limits it and doesn't like me touching it.

I don't know what he was attacked by. There have not been any foxes reported. He is large so I don't know if it was a cat. He smells of dirt so I'm wondering if he was attacked at the base of the neck and dragged.
