    Is there an open wound, or is the skin closed? An open fracture with bone exposed should only be treated by a vet. If there is no broken skin, you can do a figure 8 bandage to wrap the affected wing against the body. Vet wrap is good for that, but don't wrap too tight. Here is some info on that: http://www.starlingtalk.com/fractures.htm

    Thanks. There is no open wound. And no fracture, we did get some vet wrap, should we put her in a icolated spot?
