Did the vet assistant show you how to wrap the foot and leg? There's a right way and a wrong way that could cause more damage. Do you think the foot is broken?

Cleaning up the wounds and doing antibiotics is fine. I'm not sure how bad/deep the wounds are on her face. Probably not too deep. But see if the vet tech will wrap the foot properly so it heals well. They should splint the foot and wrap well enough to support the bones in proper alignment. I'm sorry your bird is hurting.

I'm so sorry. Perhaps it was the shock from being attacked and the injuries as well. I see it all too often. I get a bird in that has a minor scratch or bump somewhere and I think, "Oh, that's easy enough to handle" but then the bird dies within hours. They don't handle stress well. You did what you could and you were there for her. Take care.

There are so many possibilities that only a vet can determine what's wrong. She may be sick, she may have a leg or pelvic injury, she may be egg bound. But any of these would require professional help.
