Please don't syringe these flushes as most owners aren't experienced in doing this and can cause great harm getting fluids into the birds lungs. Just allow them to drink it.
I did the syringe when I flushed the cochin with vent gleet, I better change the article now that you said this... I could see someone not doing it right!!!

I mix it and offer in a bucket or bowl per the directions. Each flush is different on amount and length of time. Pick which one you are comfortable with using

I made the Epsom salt flush and put in a bowl. Am I supposed to mix it with more water or just the amount on the list? Also If she wont drink it what am I supposed to do? I'm making her steamed oats and eggs Do I leave the shell on the eggs or take them off ? I'm sorry I have so many questions I'm new to owning ducks and I've never dealt with a sick one. I've already lost one duck I don't wanna lose the other :( Thank you for your help

Do you have some kind of syringe, you can suck the ES solution and very slowing put it into her mouth not forcing it down her throat just slowing letting her drink from it. take the shells off and mash the eggs. I've never been able to get my ducks to eat eggs but steamed oats they may eat. if you have some molasses you might try putting some on the oats another way to get a flush into her. Always follow the direction to the flushes to avoid more problems. I sure hope she begins to feel better and very sorry for your loss.

CelticOakFarms, If I do the Epsom Salt Flush is that the only water she gets? Or do I offer fresh water during treatment. And can this be used on lead poisoned duck? Oh I have so many questions sorry. I have a rescue duck that keeps falling off balance to the right. Had her x-rayed and blood work done and sadly she has lead paint in her gizzard. Will a flush work on her to remove the paint chips? Any and all info please

I would like a little more info too for reference... I imagine each flush is a little better at removing different toxins, does anyone know which is best at which? Or do you just choose based on the ingredients you have on hand?
