    Got in a fight with a martial arts master!! Tore his toe almost off. We reattached it but it's swelling. We are treating with injectable antibiotics and topical, but no change. Could we just cut it off? Really like this roo. any suggestions?

    first I would give the bird a asprin to keep him socialble
    give some wet mash for his stomach to accept the asprin

    I would do away with the toe and use iodine straight on the cut
    keep the bird caged so he doesn't need rescuing again

    the toe may bleed
    I would heat a nail by holding it in a pliars and putting the nail over the stove unit
    till the nail is hot and catarise the cut toe
    it will not be as bad as what he is doing now
    and should save him

    \\give him the probiotic wet mash
    3 tbsp of dry crumbles
    6 tbsp of milk any kind
    and 1 tbsp of yoguart
    feed it to him twice a day for natural gut flora restitution

    keep this up till he is healed
