    Need help for my duckling... Slipped tendon

    The wheelchair worked nicely but we euthanized both Steve and Jinx on Wednesday. Both had open sores on the hocks and were unable to keep themselves clean. I decided it wasn't fair for either of them anymore. Neither could swim, poor Steve would try to zoomie but didn't get anywhere. Jinx...

    Need help for my duckling... Slipped tendon

    I have some news. I took Eve in to be euthanized but we decided not to for now. Now, my clinic does not specialize in birds, we only do cats and dogs. We did some xrays of her legs and the hock joint is rounded and also not straight. So I never will get her legs normal. 2 of the doctors felt...

    Need help for my duckling... Slipped tendon

    Sad update. Eve will need to be euth tomorrow. Her tibia/fibula are twisting to the point that her feet are ending up on her sides. She can't even get herself around on the floor anymore else she pulls herself with her bill. She can't zoomie in the tub, she can't swim over to the mealworms...

    Need help for my duckling... Slipped tendon

    They didn't like the Brewer's Yeast supplement, so I got nutritional yeast. They like that better. I still do their exercises and they get at least twice a day bath time. The other duckling slipped 1 of it's tendons again and I can't get it back. It's too painful. I'm trying to do diapers...

    Is there a cleaner way to kill a duck???

    I hold them upside down, tuck their body in my left arm like a football and cut the jugular veins in the neck and hold them until they are gone and the nerves have stopped. Everything drains into a bucket that I turn into my compost pile and then water down. All other stuff I don't use goes in...

    Need help for my duckling... Slipped tendon

    I wonder if there is brewers yeast at the supplement store they put in, in town. We have an old kids sock cut right now and trying to exercise her. She's chasing a "green worm" knotted end of a balloon for cookie stretches. She won't stand on her feet yet but we'll see.

    Need help for my duckling... Slipped tendon

    2 weeks ago I noted that one of the ducklings was starting to have a hard time walking. I started putting electrolytes in the water again and then went out and got NutriDrench for their water. In the day it took me to get the NutriDrench, 3 more ducklings started and the first duckling was...

    Duck with injured eye

    She is still improving but both were NOT happy about the dog crate. So I let them out to run, I'll grab her tonight for her meds after they put themselves to bed and I'll put her back in the crate so I can get her in the am before work without having to chase her. She immediately went out and...

    Duck with injured eye

    It was only a couple baby leaves last night and tonight. She did eat with Blackbeak today. Her eyelids are open a little bit tonight too! She got a little of the pill on her tongue tonight, she kept shaking her head more and had her tongue hanging out and drinking a lot. I'm excited she's...

    Duck with injured eye

    I can get her eyelids open a little more today than yesterday. She laid me an egg this morning but didn't eat any food overnight. She still only ate the spinach readily so I went and got her girlfriend Blackbeak hopefully she'll eat with her today. I've got to go to work, I'll update after her...

    Duck with injured eye

    I can bring home neo-poly-bac with hydrocortisone this evening if you think that would help more.

    Duck with injured eye

    So I got a video, but it is taking forever and a day to upload to my facebook page. I made the video public but it's Grace getting her bath. She really isn't graceful, she pulls muscles, trips over sticks, got stuck in the deer netting several months ago, etc. She got her eye flushed out...

    Duck with injured eye

    I'm a vet tech, but limited on exotics. I have her in the garage in a medium dog crate. I will take a video of her later. I was waiting to video her but the dog was distracting her and I just put her in there with food and water.
