sick male khaki campbell :(

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

One of my 6 month old boys is very week.  He's not eating and is hardly drinking.  On Thursday we noticed he wasn't hanging with the rest of the ducks.  On Friday we brought him in because he seemed very week.  After research online we gave him water with epsom salt.  He seemed a little better Sat. morning.  Now he continues to weaken and shake his head.  We made water with probiotic and niacin but we're having to try to drop it into his mouth from a straw. He doesn't seem to be getting much.  We also tried to mix some charcoal with water to absorb possible toxins.  We will look for a vet tomorrow but aren't sure we have any locally that will care for a duck.  We normally feed him pellets from our local feed store and none of the other ducks are showing signs of illness.  Does anyone have any other suggestions? It breaks my heart to see him not feeling well and I'm afraid we're going to lose him :(

It seemed to me you were doing all you could for him.  I hope you were able to pull him through.  Did the vet prescribe antibiotics?
