Duck Wheezing

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I picked up a pair of easter ducks from the feed store about a month ago and now I noticed one of them is wheezing and is congested. Im gonna put him in the bathtub in a little bit with some mildly warm water and hope he cleans out his nose....but if he doesnt what do I do? He doesnt seem to be in any distress....so IDK if I should be worried. Any help would be great. And before anyone asks the other duck is fine. I posted this in emergencys also but IDK if that was the right forum or not

There are a couple of things that can make your duck wheezy. I just lost one Saturday. Looked like she may have contracted a fungal infection. Not a lot you can do for that.

If she has a bacterial illness, you may want to consider an antibiotic.
Here is a list of common duck diseases.

7 quacking ducks, 5 spazzy quail, 3 lazy cats, 2 grown sons, 1 goofy husband... and no partridge, but I have a pear tree!
