Bone Fracture

Falcons may be subjected to such kind of injuries during training and hunting seasons. Those fractures may be associated with bleeding and wounds, and in such case the following should be followed:

Initially the most important issue is to stop the bleeding by holding the injured site and applying gentle pressure, cleaning and disinfecting the wound by using Iodine solution then applying antibiotic ointment and dressings with surgical gauze or a clean piece of fabric.

The fractured bone should be fixed with two straight pieces of wood rapped with cotton or fabric, put on the sides of the fractured bone and rap all of them with gauze or a clean cloth to restrict movement, do not wrap the bandage tight as this may reduce blood to the area.
