Yes Mr. duck aka cuddles, was very popular at the vet office today!!! Lol even got some crackers and water ! Lol The vet did give him pain medicine that would last about 24 hours, she said I can come back every other or every two days if needed. she kept me on the anabiotic I got from TSC, do .2cc every day for the next 10 days . She said I've been doing a really good job he looks over all really healthy , she's not sure if it's broken or if the infection inflamed his joint and just got a very stiff leg . To give him a warm bath with Epsom salt in it and allow him to soak twice a day to get him to move his leg.
Over all a great visit.
She said there wasn't enough breastmeat so to put the injection on his thigh and alternate legs!
Thanks for the update and for saying what amount of the medication your vet recommended, I'll add that to my notes. A little surprised that she suggested giving it in the leg. I understand that if he's too thin that the breast is not an option, but would have thought that under the skin would be a better choice than in the leg.
