Hi All and Happy Spring! Our wonderful Goose (she's a duck named Goose) is lame, and given that this is our first lame duck, we're looking for some assistance in both diagnosis and treatment. I've scanned through a bunch of threads here on bumble foot and the like, and I've consulted the duck books on my bookshelf. I'm still not decided on a course of action, so I thought I'd turn to you guys. Here are the basics: Yesterday morning (Friday), it appeared as if Goose was limping when I let her out in the morning. I inspected her left foot and took some pictures as best I could (I'm holding down the fort solo this week, so getting pictures was tricky). She is eating and preening and generally acting herself except for the limp. By the evening, however, it was worse. She is still doing all her usual duck stuff, but the limp was more pronounced. I carried her around behind the flock as they grubbed around the property. When I'd put her down, she'd quite happily grub and preen, but she didn't like to go far on her own. She either sat on the grass or tucked her one foot up. When the ducks moved on, she would wait for me to pick her up and carry her to wherever they had gone off to. This morning, it is the same or worse. She does not want weight bear on it at all really, but she did burst out of the run to have her soup. I took her down to the little brook and she quite happily floated about while probing the banks and bottom for snacks. I inspected her foot again, and I didn't really see much difference, but we are new to ducks, and I certainly could be missing something. Here are some pictures: Any thoughts would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
