    Mud! I put mud on an injured baby bird and put the bird up high and it's mother continued to feed it and eventually the baby bird regained its strength and off it went.

    after washing it I would use spider webs
    theyre good for clotting the blood if its not horrific.
    my gramma was bit by horse and grampa used sipderwebs on her chin until he get her to teh dr.
    and he let the dog lick it first, to clean it. (eww but true)

    and if u use grass, thats been rubbed into a lather, it can be used as disinfectant... I think...

    if its a wound,either mix saliva with soil and apply on the wound if its a cut then keep a white cobweb on it.
    not only in the wild even at home i do it. 
    try it

    I have heard to use mud.  I guess if it were hot outside you could also use pieces of your clothing (like your shirt).  If it was gushing and a tourniquet was needed, you'd have to shred cloth and twist it with a stick.
