    I came outside this morning to find my pekin duck limping and with a cut on his foot.
    I'm thinking about bathing it in antiseptic but unsure if I should take him to the vet.
    He is trying to keep up with my other duck and can't really walk that fast so I'm scared he will hurt his foot even more.
    When he isnt walking he is resting on his other leg with the injured foot slightly raised.

    Any help!?[​IMG]
