One of my Welsh Harlequin girls started limping on Saturday when I let her out of her coop. I inspected her foot and leg and found a black scab about the size of a pea on the bottom of her foot that looks just like all the bumblefoot pics I have seen on this website. Her leg was not hot or swollen and there was very little swelling by the scab. I cleaned up her foot and removed the scab. Underneath it looked like nice healthy flesh, I took equine anatomy, care and health practicum in college so I feel fairly confident in that assessment. I squeezed but got nothing out of it. In reality I didn't expect to get anything out because it didn't look like anything was there. I put some Polysporin on and wrapped her foot. I kept her out of the water. Sunday I redid the wrap and added more polysporin. It already looks almost healed!!! She already has a fresh layer of healthy looking skin covering the wound. I'll keep wrapping it and medicating it for a few more days just to be safe. I can't tell if she is limping because of her foot or because of the wrap. Her limping is dramatically worse with the wrap on. I should have taken pictures but I didn't think of it since I was busy worrying about her and how to take care of her. I believe we caught it the first day it started bothering her. Each night I wind down my day by letting the ducks free range for 30 minutes or so while I follow behind to keep them safe. I am positive she was not limping Friday night when I tucked them in. Could I have caught it early and that is why there was no gunk in it? Should I have dug into it more? Or am I treating something that is not bumblefoot? Please reassure a worried duck mom!
