turkey with possible bumblefoot

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a turkey with possible bumblefoot but she does not have a black spot on the bottom of her foot that would indicate a staph infection.  Its just a thick callous and it is much larger than her other foot.  She acts as though it is painful and she just stands hunched over and is barely eating and drinking.  I have read that turkey bumblefoot is different than chicken bumblefoot but I cannot find any info on how to treat.  Can anyone help with advice on treatment please?

Good morning!  Enter "turkey bumblefoot" into the search box.  I just did, and found quite a few threads.  It seems as though you're going to need to get your hands on some topical antibiotics.  Good luck!

Thank you for your suggestion.  I did search bumblefoot but everything I have read is for the black spot staph infection.  The bottom of my turkey's foot looks normal.  It is just about twice as big as the other foot on the bottom pad.   I haven't been able to find any specific treatment info for this type of thing.
