my poor kakariki got his toes stuck when my mum slightly closed the door, not fully thank god. He lost a lot of blood and one of this toes is crooked and severed. i think the other toe is slightly cut but it’s too bloody. We tried pouring flour on to stop the blood but everytime he moved around it bled more. there’s a lot of blood on his fur and he just sits with his toe tucked in. he’s still moving around and eating but i’m worried he’s in pain. it’s too late to call the vets and it’s usually a long process due to corona delays. we attempted a plaster but it just comes off. he’s picking a lot of his feather because of the blood. what should we do?

Call your vet and see if they have emergency information on their answering machine (many do). Even if you can get the bleeding to stop (try cornstarch), you are right that he will be in pain
