Hi, I seem to have inadvertently adopted a duck from the local park. I took my dog there for a walk the other day and found him looking a little worse for wear. I took him to the vet and they seem to think that he is quite old and was attacked by the other ducks. They said he just needs a could of days rest and should be OK. He's had his couple of days rest in our dogs crate, nice and quiet, relatively undisturbed except for cleaning and feeding. Problem is he is still unable to walk properly. I've had him in the bath (much to hubby's dismay) and he swims fine but when it comes to bearing weight he struggles. Should I just give him a bit more time?? Also am I doing the right thing letting him swim with it? I figured a little exercise would be good rather than not using his legs at all for days. We are considering keeping him as I think if he was set upon once it will happen again, we have a huge back yard (for townies anyway) and with somewhere to swim I think he would be pretty happy, we also have a pen for safety at night. So I was thinking about worming him. I've read the thread about it and someone mentioned vinegar in the water... does this actually work?? Thanks in advance for any help.
