    Probably because of the iron which, I think, makes ducks sick. I'm sure others will elaborate.

    It is SPECIFICALLY made or horses. Not poultry ( chickens nor ducks, etc)

    Whomever told you otherwise is wrong. If it was a store employee, I would avoid that store.........

    It is made for a 1000 lb horse, so the concentration is way too high for something that weighs 7 or 8 lbs. Too much iron can be toxic to anything including humans.
