    My duck was attacked by something, now shes very unsteady on her feet. I took her to the vet and nothing is broken, shes got a few puncture wounds, nothing too deep, but she falls when she first gets up, it seems to be all left sided. She is currently on pain meds and antibiotics. has this happened to anyone and how can i help her?

    No, never happened here. I think she is possibly in pain and a bit stiff.......once she begins to recover she will be okay. Give her time...

    Cheers!

    Sounds like infection could have weakened her. I would give vitamins with electrolytes and probiotics once or twice a week to help build her up, and maybe some mealworm or cat kibble treats.
