I'm curious about whether anyone has ever had a skin biopsy done on their duck. I am trying to figure out next steps for my Pekin duck Penny who has some sort of bacterial skin infection. She's been to see an avian vet twice now. She's tried 5 different antibiotics, injectable meds for parasites, and pills for anti-fungal. In the last three weeks she's been on tylan powder and clavacillin, plus the anti-fungal and anti-parasite. Whatever she has is so strange, because one day it can seem like she's better, and then the next day she looks worse again. I had just postponed my re-check appointment at the vet for Friday, as I thought she might be on the mend, and doc said I could keep going on the clavacillin for another 2-4 weeks, but yesterday and today the skin looks bad and has fresh "wounds/red areas" not just scabs, and is still covering large parts of her body. I guess I'm wondering now if I should just go straight to skin biopsy instead of keeping her on these very expensive antibiotics? Is three weeks on the clavaillin enough time for it to stop spreading and for me to see a lot of healing? What could the skin biopsy possibly reveal that we haven't already treated for? I'm struggling for what direction to take with her and feeling discouraged as she's had this condition for almost three months now, and we're spending sooo much money trying to get her healed. I don't think it's anything like skin cancer, because I have another duck who appears to be mildly affected with the same thing, and she's been on the same drugs as Penny the past three weeks. Has anyone had positive experience with skin biopsy for their poultry? Thanks!!
