I am sorry to hear about this dove; thank you for trying to help him. The best thing would be to find the nearest wild bird rehabilatator in your area. Where do you live?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 2 months ago.

Legally, only licensed rehab specialists can treat wild birds, and they best know how to diagnose and treat birds, and if possible, release them back into the wild.
