    Hello all,

    My 6 week old Welsh harlequin duck had a sezuire this afternoon. Earlier in the day she ate a wasp and then we thought it stung her in the throat because she was running all over freaking out. About 3 hours later, she had a sezuire. Could the two be related?

    I stopped supplementing niacin when they left the brooder about two weeks ago. After the seizure, I seperated her from the chickens and goose and gave her water with niacin. Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Yes, I think they could be related. How is she now?

    I am not sure what you could give her to help her out without a vet's guidance....

    She had another sezuire the next day, but not again since. She seems okay now. So weird

    That neurological stuff can be tricky, and I believe bee / wasp venom is a neurotoxin.
