One of my ducks this morning is really quite poorly.
Last night was totally fine and normal. But when I got up she wasn't walking right and quite lame, seemed to be choking and coughing a lot, is normally very noisy but not making a sound.
Over the course of a few hours she wasn't getting any better, by time got her to a vet she couldn't walk at all and just had her feet sticking out backwards. She was clearly very weak!
The vet wasn't a specialist in ducks but did the best he could, gave her a good check over. Said her breathing sounded fine and everything looked normal.
Gave her an antibiotic shot and an anti inflammatory/painkiller shot, and some more antibiotics for me to give her.
Since getting her home seems to have perked up a little bit but still not doing great.
She is drinking, offered her some peas (her fave) she took one, but appeared to choke on it and wouldn't take anything else.
Anyone got any ideas what might be up, and why she has got so much worse so quickly?
