I have a duckling that was acting a little off this morning. In 10hrs s/he has confirmed that s/he is unwell.
Symptoms are: lack of appetite, neck spasms pulling to the left side, sleepy and inactive. Makes a "chewing" motion before and after the spasm. Sometimes after a particularly bad spasm s/he makes a squeaking, pained noise.
Still walking fine, just not much, and can still run when necessary. No noticable discolourations or injuries. Crop feels empty. Is pooping normal (fr a duck who hasn't eaten or drank much). Ears and eyes are clear, nostrils appear clear, I opened her/his mouth and couldn't see anything lodged in there.
Any advice? S/he is in quarantine (a box beside me) and will be started on garlic and honey water, followed by vitamins.
