bumblefoot on ducks feet what dosage???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My pekin has scabbed over sores on the fatty pads on the bottom of his feet.  He doesn't limp while walking but does seem to hold a foot off of the ground while standing and sits more than usual.  What could have caused this and how should I treat it?

It could be bumblefoot. I will move this to the mergencies forum and you can do a search there on bumblefoot.
Can you post nice clear pics?

I have determined that my Pekin duck has bumblefoot (thanks to the help of terrielacey hugs)  I am on my way to the IFA to pick up the antibiotic for him. 

I have powdered terimycin on hand.  Would that work or do I need to get something else??? 

What dosage should I administer??? 

How do I prevent this.  He is on grass or swimming in a pond all day.  He may step on rock only once in a while.

How do I bandage his foot??? he will just muck it up and get it wet...can I use liquid bandaid???  My DH uses this on his hands and it works decently.

Thanks for the help and a BIG THANK YOU for terrielacey for your prompt help.
