    I've never had a problem with one of my dogs and birds, but this morning my duck tried to eat one of my dog's bone while he was eating it. The dog pounced, not biting her or anything but just jumped at her. She is now limping with one of her legs, and it looks hard for her to put weight on it. She is acting normal, and does not appear to be stressed or in pain, but she will not walk very far and is sitting down a lot. Is there anything I can do to help her? should I put some vetwrap around her leg or something? And do you think these things get better in their own, or not?
    Any advise is appreciated
