Snowy Owl patient admitted all covered in cow manure, looks and smells somewhat better. He has a ways to go to sparking white. He is alert and ate 110 grams of meat . He also had another bath and will be bathed daily for several more days to make sure no caustic materials remain that could further damage his skin or feathers. We use a bird friendly shampoo to maintain the natural oils in his skin and feathers. The Snowy Owl has "burns" on his skin from the digestive enzymes contained in the manure that covered his entire body with the exception of his head. Bird feathers are very delicate and must maintain their natural oils to remain water proof and in good condition.
