Wings: no fractures or soft tissue injuries palpated bilaterally
-ROM: bilaterally unremarkable

2017-239 did not eat overnight, so this morning 0.43mL meloxicam was given orally and new unmedicated food was offered (30g M). A pellet, however, was present in the cage indicating that the owl had eaten something yesterday, probably right before being brought to the SRC. Because it is not possible for a bird to eat when there is a fully formed pellet present in the crop, it could explain why he did not eat overnight. Continue to monitor.
Blood is no longer present in the oral cavity.

2017-239 presented on 10/12/17 with an unknown history. Physical exam findings were as follows:
Mentation: quiet when handled initially, bright when being removed from cage
Posture: unremarkable
Overall appearance: unremarkable
Heart Rate: 144bpm, no murmurs or arrhythmias auscultated
Respiratory Rate: 12rpm, no crackles or wheezes auscultated
Mucous mem: pink, moist
Dehydration: none
Oral cavity: fresh blood
-choana: unremarkable
Beak/cere: unremarkable
Eyes: direct unremarkable
Ears: unremarkable
Feather quality: unremarkable
Wings: no fractures or soft tissue injuries palpated bilaterally
-ROM: bilaterally unremarkable
-Patagium: intact bilaterally
Legs/Feet: unremarkable
-ROM: unremarkable
-plantar surface: unremarkable
-talons: unremarkable
Ceolom: no masses or abnormalities palpated
BCS: 3/5
Vent: NE
Uropygial gland: NE
Conclusions: the fresh blood in the mouth could be coming from the sinuses, trachea, esophagus, or oral mucosa. The choana, glottis, and oral mucosa were all normal, so the blood is coming from the esophagus.
The patient will be offered food containing Meloxicam (see treatment plan for details) this evening and will NOT be handled to prevent as much stress as we can. An oral exam will be done tomorrow morning to see if the bleeding has stopped over night, meaning the area of the bleed has clotted.
