HURT PEKIN DUCK . . . HELP!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

One of my four Pekins has a bad injury on her foot. It's big and swollen and looks really really bad. She's limping too. What should I do????

Where is the injury? If it's on the bottom in could be bumble foot. Do you know how she got it?

 

Do you have any pictures?

It is on the bottom on one of her toes. It's really big.  I don't have any pictures right now. If it is bumblefoot, can it be treated??

Yes bumble foot can be treated, but it can be difficult. It's an infection with staphylococcus aureus. Here is a link to a way of treatment: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/807777/bumblefoot-new-ideas-on-treatment-with-pictures

 

I have no experience with bumble foot treatment but @Amiga @Miss Lydia probably know.

 

If you use the search function you can find more threads on bumble foot and its treatment. And also pictures.

Kroelies gave you a good link - that method Haunted55 found. @Miss Lydia has used it I think, as have others.

Please PM me, or use @Amiga in the message if you would like to hear from me soon.

Yes I have used this method of treatment and it worked on my 2 hens who had bumble foot. I would def try it before cutting. Keep her from making it worse by running around too much in other words while doing treatment keep her in a smallish area and with a friend if you can so she won't be lonely
