I think I have my first case of bumblefoot. Vet is not an option. It is quite swelled and somewhat hard at center. But not out away from the 'scab" (? dark area I assume is a scab). There does appear what I guess is a scab on the center as you can see. I assume that the swelling indicates pus is present? Research I have done indicates bumblefoot in ducks differs from that in chickens? And that the infection can be transmitted to humans? Bath in epsom salts, wash with diluted iodine or warm soap water and lance (heaven help me) with a sharp instrument, fill with antibiotics (best I have is neospirin) and cover? Separate her from the flock until healed in thick bedding? (indoors?) How to bath with espom salts - let her swim in bath everyday? Suggestions for covering a duck foot? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Ciscoe comes to protect his girl while we wee examining her. Love this darned duck.
