I have a wild duckling that I am looking after (it was given to a vet I volunteer at). It started sneezing a bit so I took it to the vet and they said it had some respiratory problem and they are giving it medication (betamoxin) to try help it get better but said it may not get better.
It now has problems breathing and water coming from its nose and wobbles when it stands. I took it to the vet earlier today so it could get its second dose and it started freaking out and kept falling over and squawking ( the vet described it as a seizure but it's calmed down now so i think it could have just been from the stress of going in the car and being at the vet). It wouldn't eat or drink much but it has had some food and water now.
The vet says it's not looking hopeful for it but I thought I'd ask if there was anything i could do or something I could feed it to help it heal? I am currently just feeding it soggy mashed cat biscuits with a bit of sugar in it (as told by vet as this is my first time looking after a duck).
I read some other posts on here and people have fed their sick/weak ducks honey and yogurt or hard boiled egg yolk. Should I do that?
I'm not sure what kind of duckling it is or how old it is (it's quite small though and could fit in the palm of one of my hands).
Hoping for a reply soon!
