I've spent the last several hours going crazy on Google trying to figure out what is wrong with my duck. I rescued an abandoned duckling (Muscovy) back in July. He was quite small but in very good health. He grew rapidly, developed an awesome personality, and was doing wonderfully - until a few days ago. He randomly started to throw up his water and food. That lasted a few hours, then he was okay. The next day he drank water, chicken broth and Gatorade and seemed back to normal. Now he won't eat and he is very lethargic. He drinks often but won't touch anything we try to feed him. He'll look at it partially interested, and then turn his head. He didn't eat anything strange so I really have no idea what could have happened. When I say he was doing wonderfully until this happened - I mean it. He was the picture of health and energy. I know little about ducks except that I love them. I'm not someone who raises them or anything, I just acted out of concern for him being abandoned. If I seem utterly clueless, it's because I am. My sister tried a Molasses flush. He drank that up like it was going out of style. But we've noticed no improvement. My low cost vet does not treat ducks and I cannot afford to take him elsewhere. I feel so hopeless. Can anyone give me an idea of what might be wrong with him? Will feeding him Gatorade and chicken broth keep him from starving himself to death?
