So... About two months ago my duck had a blunt injury to her hip. She spent about three weeks sitting in a box with her leg stretched out backwards. Finally when she wasn't really getting better we took her to the vet and found out what was wrong. To be honest, I wish she hadn't come home that day because things haven't gotten much better since. The vet seemed to think that she could get better... so we tried to do physical therapy with her. But we've only had time for 15 minutes to an hour every day which I know isn't enough. Right now she's improved to the point where she can stand awkwardly, with her bad leg farther back and her good leg scooted forward, and mild support from me holding her up. But she can't take a step because that bad leg will slip backwards out of place and be straight out again. I have a splint on her foot to help her get her ankle bent the right way and try to stretch that tendon out again. I'm unsure if it's just because of the tendon issue that she tries to keep her injured leg (the hip should be healed by now) so far back or if the hip healed a bit out of line. But I was wondering if there's any hope for her, even if we start putting in more time? We're trying to prepare to put her down tomorrow and it's very hard. I feel terrible just thinking about it and I feel like I've failed her.
