Jackdaw Rescue

We admitted this beautiful Jackdaw some weeks ago, he arrived with a broken wing.

Where possible, we try to repair, if repairable and when there is a realistic chance of the survival and being able to be released. The break was complicated, the only way to repair it was for an operation, fortunate for this chap, he had a reasonable chance of a full recovery.

Our vets Eastwood Vets4Pets pinned the broken bones to align and build an external scaffold to support during the healing process. Eight weeks later, here he is back at the vets being gassed down to remove the scaffolding that has been supporting his broken bones.

Now it will be a few more weeks at the vets to recondition his muscles and then hopefully a successful release
