    I'm so sorry that happened. I don't have any advice for first aid but I sure hope she pulls through for you. [​IMG]

    Oh, no! [​IMG] Ducks are incredibly hardy, and there's a good chance she might make it if you give her time to rest and keep her safe. Any idea what the culprit was? Make sure your girl has food and water where she can reach it, and keep her confined so she doesn't injure herself further. Keep us updated!

    [​IMG] Sorry for the attack. Domestic dogs can do a lot of damage in a hurry. Have you inspected her chest for damage? A lot of dogs will go for the chest. Look under the feathers & see if it needs cleaning up. You can apply neosporin to help keep it clean, and you might want to get some duck-safe fly spray to keep maggots out of the wound if there is one.

    Good luck. Hope she recovers quick.
