    I'm so sorry, I do not know.

    Was the vet you saw an avian vet?

    @casportpony or @Eggcessive may know more about this than I do.

    I would definitely see a qualified avian vet, they can help where others can't. Hang in there, praying for you both! <3

    Do you have records from the vet? How is the injury described in clinical notation if so? I have found a few case studies on tracheal injuries and there appear to be treatment options. Of course, knowing nothing about your duckie makes it impossible to guess but it may be helpful to keep in mind that similar conditions have been treated and maybe if you find the right vet they can help you! He will probably need surgery and that can get expensive, but sometimes no cost is too high for our precious little ones. Keep us posted okay?
