Pekin duck with swollen leg

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a pekin duck who has had a leg problem for a while. I have tried giving her brewer's yeast, vitamins and electrolytes in her water. I don't know what else to do. She can't walk very far. The leg is follen from the top and the foot is is not moving . Please help .

Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined the flock! We may need a picture. Also you may want to try and post another thread at Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries forum. People there have lots of knowledge on many things. The only thing that I can think of that could be it but I could be wrong is her legs are getting too cold which I wouldn't be counting on or maybe a fracture. You might need to take her into a vet to get an x-ray. I wish you luck with your Pekin duck and hope she makes a full recovery.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
