I’m sorry for your loss as well
We have a Ruby as well our other girl and the sister to the one who passed awayThanks.
you’re right too, most people don’t get it, unless they spend lots of time with ducks. Cute story, the two babies (they’re 2 months old) were sitting on their mother’s favorite spot. It’s on top of a little shelter they have in their run. Only their mom, Ruby, went up there. It was cool to see them enjoying her favorite spot!
I'm so sorry you lost her. It can be so dang hard to lose animals.We have a Ruby as well our other girl and the sister to the one who passed away
So very cute they feel so connected to their mom still.
I just got a call from the vet. The student vet there last night is able to send the duck for autopsy free of charge as part of her program. We will get answers in a few weeks
My other two are going on tomorrow to get check ups to make sure they are doing okay as ducks tend to hide illness till it’s to late
Thank youI'm very sorry you had to say goodbye to your sweetheart.
You are right that a lot of people don't understand how it feels, but we do. And it can be just as hard as loosing a cat or dog. It is for me.
I have gotten necropsies done at my vet for all my ducks who have passed away and it has given me a lot of closure. I hope it helps you, too.
