She is so cute. I can't remember who it was but a member posted about their duckling liking to get in the shower with them [just don't use soap on her] it will take any natural oil for water proofing off. Some duckling just don't like baths do you fill the tub up just enough so she can stand up maybe try that for a while then go to deep enough for her to float. Does she like little green peas you could try putting some in her bath water to float so she can go after them.

I need help my duck hurt her leg and I don't know how to help her !!!she has been an in side duck recently me and my wife bought her a large outside fence area that she seem to have lots of fun we put. A pool and everything for her but we came home one day from work and we noticed she's limping, it's been 3 days now and now it's like she struggles to walk we pick her up and she seems to be fine but we place her down and she struggles her foot is swollen

Could be a sprain, a sting, maybe even bumblefoot.

 

Have you checked the bottom of the foot for a swollen spot?  Not the entire foot, but with bumbles it's concentrated in a smaller area, and may or may not show a scab or dark center at this point.  If the foot is noticeably warmer than the other one, that's a sign of spreading infection and oral or injectable antibiotics are probably needed.  In that case, a good duck vet is best.

 

I would give her time as much as possible to float in lukewarm water, no soap.

 

Afterward, I would give her an Epsom salt compress (don't let her ingest it, it is a laxative).  I would follow that with a dab of T-Relief or comfrey salve on the foot and leg.  If it's a sprain, that is what works best from what I have seen.  And it may still take over a week for her to recover.

 

If she has been stung, then a tiny, pea-sized dab of benadryl cream on the sting should fix her up.
