cat attack!!

I came home from work and Lyle my goffins cockatoo had decided to liberate the other birds from their cages :s everyone was okay except Roxy my budgie she was in the basement and my cat was stalking her, he injured her wing or directly under her wing I can't see where the blood came from, I gave her baytril, and disinfected and flushed the wound with diluted peroxide, I also gave her some Gatorade and hand rearing formula. I am so sick with worry that she won't make it because we all know how toxic cat saliva is. My vet won't be open till Monday and I just feel sick with worry

Pasturella is a horrible thing to be dealing with. How bad is the wound? Keep her on Baytril for about 10 days. My thoughts are with you

Thanks guys I'm not really sure, feathers are missing and the areas read but I don't sew the actual wound, its all clean anyways, and I plan to clean it twice a day. She made it through the night and isn't puffed up so that's a good sign. Thanks Daisy I will keep her on the baytril for 10 days. She's quite alert, I'm just so glad she's not dead though she could be if I don't treat this seriously. When I couldn't find her I was so sure I was going to find a dead bird

A cat had my Alexandrine, Kona, when he escaped a few weeks back. I had him on Baytril and he was fine shortly after. He did have a wound though it is very scary. I'm sure she will be fine. Just keep positive

Thanks Daisy I will, good to hear he was okay. I guess I'm going to have to keep the bird room door closed since Lyle wants to visit the other birds. He really likes them and has never gone after them only sat quietly close to them, do you thinking would be okay to let them all free in the room together or would there be too much risk of Lyle hurting them :/

Put it this way, birds of their own species can kill each other so no matter what there is always going to be a risk. If you really can trust him then I would go for it if one does stray too close, they may get bit, but if they don't approach him and he doesn't approach them I can't see why there would be conflict. Just make sure you're there to supervise

I hope your Budgie makes it ok. One of my Budgies got out while I was gone before and one of the cats got it but it pulled through. Not all cats have the Pasturella bacteria.

In Duesseldorf we press all thumbs and claws for her.
you did everything right, she will make it.
But I would be cautious with letting out small and large parrots together.
Our family vet has two rooms with rescue birds in his office.
And his assistant told me that the blue headed amazon killed the budgies.
Now he has to wait until the small birds' free flight is over.
