    We had rescued a duck.
    He cant stand or walk.falling on his belly.
    We tied his tiny feet but he doesn't seems to improve.
    Today i had noticed thawhen he drinks or eats(yeast) he sneezes and cant manage to swallow.if he does all the content of the feed run out trough his nose.we dont have a vet that can help here or anywhere..
    I checked his crop and throat and it seems fine.
    Help:(

    I'm so sorry, I don't know how to help, I don't have any experience with this sort of thing. But I thought I'd go ahead and say if you can, post pictures. It may help whoever does know how to help.
    Have you been giving him either food specifically for ducks, brewers yeast, nutritional yeast, or niacin in his water? niacin deficiency is the main thing I've heard of causing leg issues. I'm really not sure about the eating problem...
    Is he pooping normally? Is he active or is he acting lethargic at all? Does he have access to water (deep enough for up to his nostrils?) whenever he eats?
    There should be more people online soon, as it's just getting to be morning in the US and that seems to be where most people on here are from.

    Good luck! I hope he's okay, and it's great of you to be doing what you can for him [​IMG]

    Are you saying he can't keep any food or water down? Or are you saying he sneezes when trying to eat yeast? Are you giving just plain yeast or are you mixing it with the feed?
