I have an indoor duck that seems to have what I have found online to be called feather rot. It looks to me like it's from wearing a diaper to much. This week we have had a family member put on life support, so been away alot, and this being said he's had to be diapered round the clock. He can't be put out side due to his broken leg, other wise we wouldn't be here. ok, now my next question, He started about a week ago turning his nose up to his food, and will only eat dog food. Asked the vet, they know so little about ducks, that she said she guessed that'd be ok. so now I'm seeing what is looking to be feather rot, not sure how to treat, or even if thats what it is, and not from eating dog food. We have started feeding our dog seperately, and only letting the duck have his food. He's still not eating it as much as he should be. Anyone have any ideas. Can't afford anymore vet bills, but at the same time, they don't really know anything about ducks, so anything we ask they have to research, so I figure, why can't I research too?
