    It will cost $45-$65 to have the vet look at it. Who knows, maybe the vet will say that you don't need to do anything.

    If he needs surgery on his foot, what would that cost?

    Might be as little as $25, but could be as much as $300.

    If he is limping, I really think you should consult with a vet.

    If getting bigger I'd say a vet if you can even find one who will look at a duck. Do you have a vet that sees other animals in your family?Seems if it's getting bigger then something is defiantly going on int there.
