Have you found a bird which has been attacked by a cat or dog?

Slide 1
Have you found a bird which has been attacked by a cat or dog?

The saliva of cats and dogs contains Pasteurella multocida bacteria, which cause fatal infections in birds, mammals and reptiles within a few hours, if not treated with appropriate antibiotics as soon as possible.

Slide 2
What shall I do now?

Keep the bird safe and warm and get in touch immediately with your local wildlife rescue or rehabber. Please do not release a bird without obvious signs of an injury. A tiny scratch or puncture wound is enough to seed the potentially fatal infection.
