I see so many people post about what they can give their ducks when they are sick and how to administer it. I think it would be great if we compiled it all into one informational thread were everything can be in one locationation. Anything from predator attacks and how to treat wounds to what anibiotics are safe for ducks and what they should be used for and how much should be used. I myself do not know alot about all the duck safe things so please anyone who does know any of the above I mentioned or think it should be added to this list just tell me and I wil keep the list going. Anyone please feel free to correct any of this if it is wrong. Naicin- 100-150mg per gallon of water. Used for growing ducklings to help with the legs. Can also be given to help with leg injuries. Angel wing- Vet tape or medical tape to help put the wing back into its natural place. Main cause is to much protien Poly-V-Sol -Baby vitamin (non-iron) not sure on dosage or correct use Blue kote- Cuts and scrapes from pecking or other incidents. Administering oral medications threw a syringe- 1. Prep some of your duck's favorite treat and put it somewhere out of sight but easy to access 2. Prep the syringe and keep it somewhere convenient 3. Sit down and hold your duck on your lap facing away from you 4. Place your left hand on the ducks chest and slide it up until you're cupping the head and bill. Gently push the head and neck against your chest. (ducks will move their head back and down to escape. Your left hand keeps the head from going down and your chest stops is from going backwards. 5. Using your right hand, carefully pry open the duck's mouth. Once it is open put the tips of your thumb and index finger (left hand) partially in her mouth to keep it from shutting. 6. Now that your right hand is free again, grab the syringe 7. Carefully slide the syringe down the duck's throat. Don't use any more force than you would pushing against your own eyeball. If you feel resistance, try to tilt the duck's head up more. 8. Carefully press down on the plunger and dump the medicine directly into the crop. 9. Pull out the syringe and let go of your duck. 10. Apologize for manhandling (duckhandling?) her by offering her favorite treat. (this is important to prevent long term trust issues) Lets keep adding and see if we can get everything one here!
