Sick Duckling

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

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.

WARNING: I don't get out of the house much, and don't get many visitors. My partner gets a bit tired of hearing about the going ons of the menagerie we have here, and my thoughts and theories on it, so I tend to ramble on and write essays online.....apologies in advance...feel free to tell me to shush...

Could a predator have injured her neck?  Sounds like you are on top of it.  Hope you pulled her through.
