    So, just a heads up I wrote an article about Bumblefoot, but my big baby Quakers (the duck) has Bumblefoot, again. So a couple of months ago, when I joined BYC I wrote a thread about it, people responded, and wallah! Bumblefoot's gone! I **think**. But, yesterday I noticed he was limping. So I put him in his pen. And then I remembered that I had bought a Vetricyn thing for the Bumblefoot when he got it last time. The worker at TSC said that all the Vetricyn bottles keep the main recipe, and to fix the problem like burning eyes, they add more ingredients to fix it. So I bought the burning eye stuff because I told the worker that my duck had Bumblefoot, and he said that's what I needed and that even though it has "burning eye" on it, it would fix the Bumblefoot. So I (remember, this was last time.) put the Vetricyn on his Bumblefoot thing on the bottom of his foot on the area that was infected and did that for 3 days, and I **thought** it was gone. So, as I said, yesterday I saw he was limping. So I put the Vetricyn on and I put it on today a few minutes ago and took some pictures. Please, tell me if I need to put any more information on this thread and I took some pictures, which are down below:
    (I have to post the pics with my phone, please allow a couple of seconds)

    Is that the same spot as the last infection?

    It would be helpful to know. If it is the same spot then there is a chance you didn't all of the infection out. :(
