we have a duck that’s limping and discovered what looked like bumblefoot on both feet. This is our first duck flock, so first time dealing with this. Everything I’ve watched/read said peel off scab and squeeze out infection. So I soaked yesterday in Epsom off and on and treated with neosporin and that vetermycin spray. Today we soaked him an hour before attempting to remove the scab. I peeled the scab off his left foot, but what was underneath seemed like normal, healthy tissue. I squeezed and squeezed and all that came out was blood. Did I do it right? Am I supposed to cut that bloody, whitish area? He wouldn’t let us mess with the right foot but about 2 min, so all I got done on that one was a small area picked off and started leaking blood, so right now he’s in our bathtub on a towel with his feet sprayed and covered in neosporin. So does this look like I did it right, or not?
