Get Answers to Bird Care Questions. Ask a Bird Specialist.
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in birds. I'm sorry to hear of this incident. I apologize for the lack of formatting. I'm working from my phone and the JustAnswer platform doesn't allow formatting except on a computer. The first step is to gently wash the would with aild soap and water. Rinse well. Follow that with an application of Betadine (sold on first aid departments of discount stores and pharmacies). Then put on a very thin layer of plain Neosporin. Treat the Neosprin each day. Until the wound heals, don't let the goose swim because that increases the chances of infection. Just provide a bucket of water. Animal bites are very prone to infection. Watch for increased redness, swelling, appetite loss, or lethargy. If any of those appear, you'll need to see a vet for prescription antibiotics. If you have more questions, let me know in a REPLY. I hope the wound will heal uneventfully. Anna
