    Can you post a picture of her? How do you know she has internal injuries? Most of the time there is really nothing you can do by yourself unless you want to take her to the vet.

    I've never had hawk attack but have had dog attacks. I assume she has puncture wounds like dog teeth? Whatever the damage, first thing to do is examine checking everywhere. For initial cleaning use a dilution of 50/50 water with hydro peroxide. Then rinse with water and damp dry with gauze.
    Then I would apply a really good antibiotic such as Veterciyn on the wounds to prevent infection or what ever you have on hand. Like Golden check says" how do you know she has internal injuries" ?
    Are there wounds near vital organs? Is it visible? I always keep mine warm and where I can keep a close watch while in rehab. Check previous post for more info. on how to treat.
