This young dove was brought into us after being found on the ground with no nest visible. Its feet had curled up on themselves and it could not stand up.
Emma, our vet, examined it and found the young bird to have a calcium deficiency. Luckily, this is easily treatable and, after being put on a course of supplements, the birds feet were bandaged in the correct position to help keep the toes and feet aligned.
The little boots have proved quite popular!
