I saw a pigeon get smacked by a passing car while on my walk. I ran over to take a look. The pigeon was alive but bleeding from it's mouth. I ran him(?) home and put him in a box with a towel to try to make him comfortable. It has currently been about 6 hours since I have found him and he is still alive. I have gotten him to drink a little, and I have put some bread in the box for him to eat.
I don't know if there is anything I can do for him to help him recover. One of his wings has a s....e on it and sits a little funny- I don't know whether its broken or not. Is there a way to tell? Can I set it if it's broken?
One side of his neck is very swollen. Might that be a result of internal bleeding? Muscle damage? Bruising?
Are there any transferable diseases I should be worried about? I've heard that pigeons can be very disease-ridden because they eat garbage and feces of other birds.
the fact that he's survived this long makes me believe that he is capable of living through this. I just need to know how I can help him out....
