Duck won't eat - help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My khaki Campbell who is not quite two years old won't eat. She has been separating herself from the flock and not eating for almost a week. She lays down and sleeps a lot. I took her to the vet yesterday and didn't get to much from them. Olive was given some meds for bacteria, yeast as a precaution and a dewormer as a precaution. She did have blood in her poop yesterday and I was told it was because of the bacteria. She is so thin (half the weight as our other khaki). Please help. I don't know what to do. We have never had to deal with a sick duck and am so worried. She has had 2 doses of her meds but she just won't eat. Any suggestions?

When she poops, it's like the clear portion of an egg. She's slept in the house last night and no egg this morning.

You are probably at the point with her that she needs to be either syringe fed or tube fed.
