So, on Wednesday my ducks got attacked by a mink. Most of them have just small superficial wounds that will heal. But two have bone-deep wounds in neck near head. We are keeping it clean but if it gets infected they will die. Does anyone know of any human meds that are safe for ducks? Or good antibiotics you can get at feed store? Vitamins maybe? They are eating, but not drinking. They are in out house in a large dog crate with about 6 inched of bedding. Any natural remedies? I'll do anything but go to the vet-it's too expensive.
Thanks for any help,
P.S. Also, two dies during attack. We killed the mink that night.
