    [​IMG] been battling swelling, and on antibiotics and anti-inflammatory, does the swollen left foot (if you were the duck) look like it has an abscess? Any advice? Will this break open and drain?

    It looks like the duck has lost part of its foot (possible snapping turtle?) :/......

    A normal duck web should look like this:

    It looks like the web is just very swollen, and there doesn't seem to be an abscess. Epsom salts should help to bring the swelling down.

    Good luck.

    I do see swelling, maybe infection? I don't really see an abscess
