    It could be? Or a prickle stuck in the foot and skin grew around it?
    Is the Duck lame?

    Cheers!

    Looks a lot like what my duck had. Is the foot warm? We had good results with our treatment.....Soak foot in epison salt then cover in hydrogen peroxide let dry spray with vetericyn and cover with antibiotic ointment

    No, not at all. Just spotted it when she came for cuddles and I did a quick foot check!

    Thanks guys! It seems the same on both feet where the joint bit is. Maybe just hard pads... Did a salt water soak and sudocreme just incase and can't do any harm. Think she likes the attention as well!

    To treat or not to is up to you. keep a eye on duck and see if you see signs of pain in the foot and go from there[​IMG]

    We had a female pekin who had knobs like that in the same spot on both feet. Never bothered her, and she never had any problems. Just keep an eye on it, especially if it's new.

    My little girl started like that and we soaked it in hydrogen peroxide and bound it in manuka gauze and vet wrap bandage and after a went or so ito healed completely. Just keep soaking and manuka and fresh dressing and it'll heal!
