    Post a picture of her foot, since bumblefoot can be common. Also, I would post on the duck thread under Forum and drop down to Other backyard birds.

    Please read the post.

    It is for external use - not to be drunk.

    Do not put more than three drops on the swollen place.

    Please carefully read the post in the link.
