What's the recommended dose of DE for ducks. I found 5% in food, but would love if someone could give me a measurable amt.?
(Background on my poor duck:
My pekin duck has been lame for a few weeks. He had an injury to one leg & when favoring the other, he developed an infection in the good leg. He had an infection in his leg (hot, swollen, wouldn't walk...sad), and new to ducks we gave him a course of penicillin w/ procaine. We also found an area where he ate paint chips from our old foundation wall. He got a little better, then worse. We waited a few days after the penicillin treatments and started on an oral antibiotic, vetericyn spray for eye & saline washes and vitamin supplement b/c his eyes started to bubble and water...but not improving. Maybe it's metal poisoning from the procaine or paint chips? His one leg is starting to atrophy I think.)
I don't think DE is going to help but here is the link to flushes http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/700526/flushes-for-aiding-in-toxin-removal#post_9508213
I sure hope he makes it.
