So I ended up with a almost ready to fly baby seagull. When I tried to introduce him back to his nest all the seagulls in the area attacked him. I did get to him in time. Now I have him at home. But I think he has fleas, at least they look like fleas but much smaller. How do I get rid of them? What are they? And one of the ladies at work put a flea and tick drop on the back of his neck. Should I be giving him a bath? I am so worried!

Yes, get that flea medicine off him immediately. That medicine goes through the skin into the body, it may already be too late to get it off.

They may be mites, or some other parasite I'm not familiar with.
But dog/cat medicine can kill him.

Others will be on shortly with some advice on how to care for him.

Is there anyway you can get a vet? Or at the least call a wildlife rehabber?
