    I saw one of my khaki Campbell ducks limping badly while I was letting them out. I thought it was bumble foot, but when I picked her up and looked her foot was ripped, she lost a toenail, and she had bumble foot. All on the same foot. Help!

    A good duck vet would be best.

    There is an infection and injury, so cleaning it well by first soaking the foot - easiest way around here is letting them play in a tub of clean lukewarm water for a while - then for the bumble I would put two or three drops of CLEAR iodine on the bumble. Keep her in a clean safe place, perhaps with a buddy, for a couple of days.

    I have not had to deal with torn webbing. If it is minor there may not be much you need to do.. Otherwise I feel a good duck vet could properly assess and treat that.
