    Help! Is this bumble foot??

    Hi there, I read somewhere on this site that putting clear betadine on bumblefoot and taping it can cure without surgery..... Bumblefoot usually causes a black dot on the underside of the foot. I had a Cornish X that I tried to treat on my own, but it's best to have someone to help you. Maybe...

    My First Duck Egg from Flightless Duck

    I'll post a new photo It's probably just as well she can't breed, I wouldn't be able to part with the offspring I'm sure. She and my female goose are a "pair" though. Goose is not well, but is guarding the nest while Duck-Duck sits

    My First Duck Egg from Flightless Duck

    oops No, Duck-Duck is a Muscovey / Mallard hybrid. She's really small, chocolate and white in colour, has amazing green eyes, a hint of carnucles and the sweetest nature. I'll post a picture later today.

    Is this Goose too Thin?

    Completed the antibiotic course, but gooses poop is still watery. She is happy to eat bread, but very little else. She is still drinking quite a lot. I've been told that one of her kidneys might have failed, which would account for the frequent drinking, lack of appetite and watery poop. She is...

    Is this Goose too Thin?

    I saw a post by @TwoCrows which spoke of massaging the birds crop and I tried that with Goose today for a couple of minutes. I gently massaged her from crop to the top of her throat and I felt something like an air bubble, about the size and shape of Smartie sweet. I rubbed it out, but no food...

    Is this Goose too Thin?

    Say its a yest infection, what symptoms am I looking for? Could I try apple cider vinegar, or would this just feed bacteria - if it is actually a bacterial infection? I'm so worried for her. I don't know how old she is. Maybe its old age and one of her organs has packed up, or maybe its a...

    Is this Goose too Thin?

    What if there is an obstruction in her intestine, won't it burst if I force food into her? I am on my own, will it be possible to force feed a goose single handed? I recently had my two Cornish Rock girls (small goose size and feisty) euthanased because I couldn't manage the surgery and wound...

    Is this Goose too Thin?

    Goose has had x1 baytril shot, x3 Metronidazole tabs and x2 baytril tabs. Surely I should be seeing an improvement in her appetite and / or her poop? I'm really worried about her, she is incredibly thin, but seems to be putting on brave face. She's preening and drinking and moves around (tried...

    Is this Goose too Thin?

    Baytril didn't have much of an effect, so Goose is on a course of metronidazole 200mg x 2 daily as Kathy suggested. No deworming until course is completed. Faecal exam was negative for infection and worms, but I've been told to collect more poop for another test $$$$$$ and if metronidazole...

    Good thing the wall is high, or the neighbours would probably think I've finally lost it I'll worm the lot and save on the cost of the faecals! Thanks a million

    Is this Goose too Thin?

    Thanks so much! I would think I should do the whole flock then with the wormer, but since none of the others are showing signs of bacterial infection, I would only treat Goose with antibiotics?

    Is this Goose too Thin?

    Thanks so much for your input Kathy. The vet didn't bring anything except injectable baytril, but will give antibiotics to follow up with after she's done faecal analysis. She mentioned tablet form baytril and possibly flagyl, depending on the results of the smears. I'd be fine to inject, but...
