I have a year old Khaki Campbell with an injured foot/leg. I'm not sure what happened, but i'm assuming the goose went after her and she sprained it running. Her left foot is swollen, but not the leg. As far as I can tell it's not broken, but she really can't support herself on it for more than a brief second. I have her in the garage in a kiddie pool with food and water and she does manage to get to and from that. I'm not sure why she doesn't just lay by it. I gave her an Epsom salt bath a few times, but she drank the water and I didn't realize that would give her poop-issues. I use it with my goose when she injures her foot, and she takes an occasional sip and it never seems to change her poop. The last few baths for the duck have been just warm water. I'm doing those twice a day right now, and bring her inside the house at night where it's warmer.
I've searched the boards, but i'd like some reassurance. I don't have a avian vet in the area, so that isn't an option at this point. She seems to be eating a little, and is drinking her water. She's preening during and after her baths. Her poop is a interesting shade of green right now, but I think that may be due to the Epsom salt. She's taking warm soaks in the bathtub twice a day and I dry and spray her foot with Vetericyn Wound & Skin Care afterward, just to be sure we ward off any infection that could possibly be going on . I certainly don't want to over medicate, but I also don't want to miss anything. I do not think she has bumble foot. There are no black spots, but the pad where bumble is usually present is swollen as well. The swelling is mostly in her outer two "toes" on her foot. I can touch it and feel around without her trying to bite me. It is warm when I feel it, but she lays on it and I don't feel it's any warmer than it should be.
I have read about Epsom salt wraps, but I don't have any wrap at the moment. Its on my shopping list, although trying to do that myself is going to be fun. Any other advice, or things i've missed?
In the photo below you can see the foot is swollen on the middle "toe" and the outside one. The inner one seems to be okay, or only slightly swollen. I'm sorry I don't have a better photo of her foot. It's hard to hold her and take a photo of it. She doesn't like to be held.
