I recently had the opportunity to come upon a lame 2 year old gander who was in a gaggle of Sebastopol geese during breeding season. He and another male were the only breeders and he was getting beaten up pretty badly. At any rate, I offered to work with him to see if I could help with the lameness and treat his wounds. He is seriously pigeon toed and his owner stated that he had been that way since he was a gosling. He goes down almost completely on one hock and the knee joints look "bulky" - not necessarily swollen or tender. I know about adding Niacin and Riboflavin to a goslings diet to correct or prevent this problem when they are young, but has anyone had any success in treating an adult goose? If so, what method was used. His current treatment is Tylan 50 to prevent infection from the wounds daily for 5 days, Valbazen wormer (1 time today and another in 7 days and another in 30 days), Neosporin and antiseptic on the wounds, and Rooster Booster in his feed with added B3. I am not worried about the superficial and even deep wounds, but more interested in the leg treatment.
Thanks ahead of time for sharing your experiences.
