Injuried pekin duck with eye and hip injury. - Page 2

post #11 of 15
@Lboom , welcome to BYC! I have very limited experience with bone issues that high up and don't know the best way to treat them. The last one was a Muscovy drake with a fracture in the hip area. With him I decided to place him in a small pen (3' diameter) with food placed in front of him. After a few weeks in there he was able to stand and take small steps.

I will look for some info for you.

Thank you for everyone for the advice. Would brewers yeast be any help or some type of vitamins? I know brewers yeast will help with leg injuries, but thinking of vitamins for to help with wounds around eyes and healing.

I think a multi vitamin - poultry version - would be best, perhaps with electrolytes.  It ought to give her a boost.

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

BY is more for developmental leg issues in ducklings and young ducks. I agree with @Amiga and @Miss Lydia that a supplement added to the water would probably be the best option in your case.

 

The Vetericyn that Miss Lydia mentions comes in both a wash and a gel. When we have eye issues in our ducks, I wash the eye out thoroughly with the wash, which is like water, them use a couple of drops of the gel over and around the eye. The gel clings to the area where it's applied and lasts much longer than the wash.
