this morning I noticed my Pekin duck is limping so I checked his foot and I believe he’s got bumble foot, does anyone have any experience with this or advice on what to do for it ?

You want to soak at least 3-4 days and apply clear iodine to these areas. Once you can easily peel off the scab you should be able to get to the bumble after you get the bumble[infection] which will be a hard core of puss, I have used a pair of sterile tweezers to pick out the bumble, you'll want to pack with something like triple antibiotic and wrap till healed. This takes time but bumble is staff so you don't want to put this off. We're here to help if you need it.

From my experience with bumble foot I do the Epsom salt bath then I get surgical siccors and/or tweezers and remove all of the black, scabby part and the bumble. After that i use Neosporin and medical tape and made a bandage and kept it clean and changed the tape as often as I could. I also use a Silver sulfadiazine ointment but I believe that comes from a vet prescription, it works wonders. Be sure to keep it clean.

So it has been a couple weeks the ducks beeb in two different antibiotics also soak everyday in deluted betadine and now all though the bottoms of their feet are looking better my male Pekins middle toe now looks swollen from up top I don’t know if that mean something it is spreading ? But I spent over 600 at the vet and can not afford to take them again.
