HELP!!!!!!!!! PLEASE khaki cambell walking around limping, what should I do?
Put her somewhere by herself with a stuffed animal to cuddle and a mirror if you can spare one. Not a very big space, flat and dry. Put food and water close enough to her so she doesn't have to move much to get it. You can mix sugar in with her water to give her a little energy boost if you want to. She needs to be in a quiet place by herself so she can recover. She may cry when she's there. Sit with her for a few hours throughout the day so she can have some company and keep her still for a few days.

Something else you can do is put an Epsom salt compress on her leg for several minutes. Then follow that with a tiny dab or arnica cream or comfrey ointment.
Epsom salt compress:
dissolve Epsom salt in warm water (as much as will dissolve)
dip a clean rag in the solution
wrap the leg - do not let the duck drink any of the solution - it is a laxative
Floating in lukewarm water can help. But please don't try to save time and effort by putting the Epsom salt in the tub. They drink their swimming water.
