Pigeon has string around his foot
Hello, how are you going? One of my pigeons sat on the clothesline and he got string from a towell or something it looks like wrapped around one of his feet, and the string looks like it is very tight and cutting into his feet.
What should I do to help him? Is there anything I can buy to put on his foot so it won't hurt him and so it will heal? How will I get the string off? He lets me near him so should I cut the string carefully with nail scissors as long as I am careful not to cut him, and if I pull the string out with tweezers?
What if I use lavender oil and warm water on cotton wool as an antiseptic solution, which is what I did last time on my other pigeon who the same thing happned to a few years agao? Or is there anything else that is better, anything that could help? Thanks heaps for your time, I do appreciate it a lot :-) Kind Regards, from Christina
