    I picked up a pair of easter ducks from the feed store about a month ago and now I noticed one of them is wheezing and is congested. Im gonna put him in the bathtub in a little bit with some mildly warm water and hope he cleans out his nose....but if he doesnt what do I do? He doesnt seem to be in any distress....so IDK if I should be worried. Any help would be great. And before anyone asks the other duck is fine. I posted this in emergencys also but IDK if that was the right forum or not

    There are a couple of things that can make your duck wheezy. I just lost one Saturday. Looked like she may have contracted a fungal infection. Not a lot you can do for that.

    If she has a bacterial illness, you may want to consider an antibiotic.
    Here is a list of common duck diseases.
