Help!! My duck broke his leg just above his knee. I can't afford the vet. What do I do??
Quote:Try a splint mabye? I can't be much help. Sorry.
Splint the leg with a popsicle sticks or tongue depressers. Stabilize the leg in the correct position, wrap 1 inch white tape around the sticks all the way up the leg. Then wrap with Vet Wrap or Coban. You have to immobilize the leg for several weeks until it heals. Hope this helps.
good advice from fattie...that is what I would do...splint and wrap...and I would also isolate prhaps in sight of the others, if there are others, but alone so he/she can not be further injured or bullied or have the wrap removed by a curious flock mate...
