    We went to TSC and they had one of the pekins with torticollis in which they gave us to take home along with the others we bought. We have been supplying all of them with Nutri-Drench, chick starter feed, etc. I have searched the forums on BYC and there was some mention of vitamin E capsule supplements, etc.

    Anyone had any success with treating a duckling? Any pearls of wisdom?

    Thank you!

    Nutri-Drench is good, and I would consider more of a multi-vitamin supplement. I have ND and checked the label and there are fewer vitamins than might be optimal for this condition. This is mostly my gut feeling, here, I am not an expert on this condition.

    Alot of folks use poly vi sol w/o iron when treating wry neck/star gazing. and add vit/ e and I believe selieum[sp] but not sure of doses.

    Well, sad news. We lost the poor thing-- even after my wife and I's futile attempts to help it along.

    So sorry, you gave it your best try, sometimes it's just not meant to be. [​IMG]
