Duck on prednisone

post #1 of 2

We have a female adult Pekin with a severely swollen leg joint.  The vet put her on prednisone once a day.  My question is... can we still eat the eggs?

No. You will need a good withdrawl period. Prednisone is a steroid. Also it shouldnt be stopped abruptly but weened off by lowering the dose lower and lower until finally she can be weened off. I use Prednisone for my birds when they get wry neck. It reduces brain swelling and seizures. I would withdraw all eggs while the steroid is in use and two weeks after she if off the medication. Hope this helps.
