 ! FIRST AID !        NEW >> "Rosie", the Peregrine

During the past ten years I have gained a lot of experience dealing with injured birds. Nevertheless I am a teacher and not a veterinary surgeon. In severe cases my best friend Dr. Franz Appel has always helped with patience and his veterinary advice. Some birds had to be taken to the Veterinary University of Vienna for treatment or euthanized.

All new patients must undergo a close inspection. I try to make it as comfortable for them as possible - they need it warm and calm to relax. Then I or Dr. Appel and I together decide what is to be done. Sometimes I also phone Dr. Frey for his opinion. He really is the raptor specialist. I never keep any birds that need professional treatment but I offer the vets around Schrems the possibility of keeping an injured bird in one of my aviaries (should one be vacant). Sometimes veterinarians ring me up to have a look before they euthanize birds.
