Can't find an avian vet here in the Tri Cities, but I can ask my dog vet. Just felt comfortable enough to run some errands now (new puppies) so getting some KY I USED BAG BALM FIRST. Triple antibiotic now and I'll use some KY LATER TODAY. He's my favorite runner, gray or mallard colored. He's still eating well and loves peas. Thanks again!!

use the neo and triple since you think it's rotting or infected. both will act the same as they KY as far as keeping it moist.

 

I sure hope he gets over this.. :fl

Keep him dry and just apply the antibiotic slave that will keep it moist. Have you done any research on this on your own? I'd talk to your dog vet and see if they will take a look at him. Some will.

It might not be under Avian , look for exotic vets they do everything from cats to dogs, fish, birds, and reptiles.

My duck, Malcolm is doing well. I still have him separated and the infected end looks like it will fall of any day now. My vet, being a farm guy, has treated ducks and said I'm doing all that should be needed. I'm still putting neosporin on it daily and keeping it moist with daily baths for a few hours. Here he is enjoying a little swim. Thanks to all who commented your help is invaluable!!!
