DUCKLING HAS BADLY CRACKED BEAK - Page 2

post #11 of 15

Thank you so much for your advice! I will defiantly try to fix up his/her beak by using the oral putty once I get home from school. Do you know any good places to buy the putty and is there a certain brand that you would recommend?

That's a positive sign. I'll bet once it is stabilized he'll be just fine.

When I worked at the dental office, we recommended a product called Dent temp to our patients who lost their crown, as a temporary fix. It's found with the floss and toothbrushes on the dental isle. I don't know how well it will hold, but it's worth a shot. Also, super glue sounds like a good idea.

I am planning on "glueing" it together but there's a piece of the beak missing so I don't know how that would work...is there anything that I could use to "fill" the missing part of the bottom beak?

I am thinking that if you can stabilize the ends, that the bone may in fact regrow into the gap.
