NIacin is 100 to 150 mg per gallon of water. I think of that as a duckling problem. I wonder what got into your drake?

Can you feel his legs, see if they seem unusually warm? Give him some time in a lukewarm tub. He may have an infection. Are there swollen spots on the bottoms of his feet?

I would put some Epsom salts compresses on his legs, or put Epsom salt water in a very small bucket or pan and hold him while he stands in it for as long as I could manage - five minutes at least.
