Aylesbury duck with access on his ankle


In the Brooder
Mar 7, 2018
Hi all, I'm looking for some advice regarding my Aylesbury boy, he has an abscess on his left ankle, I've been to the vets 3 times, 1st time they lanced it, puss everywhere. He's on meta cam pain relief and Baytril antibiotics. 3 time at vets and more puss came out. This will be now the 2nd week of meds. The vet has said about using a GA to do an X-ray to see if it's gone into the bone, but I'm wary of GA especially in ducks. I'm hoping that someone can give my some advice as what to do . Thanks from a worried duck Mum
