    My dog attacked my duck yesterday, I didnt see any blood or wounds, I seen a few small feathers that had been pulled out, but she is limping! She seems to do ok with limping around but this morning she isnt walking at all and is just rolling around and using.her bill to pull herself. She is eating and drinking ok because I put it right by her, she stretches her wing and even the leg out at times but.wont walk on it. It is alittle warmer than the other but I dont see any swelling, could.be at the hip im guessing, any ideas?

    If she's moving it then both her hip and leg aren't broken, she probably just sprained one of them. Keep her confined with water and food in reach and let her rest. If she's not walking in let's say two or three days then take her to the vet. While she's confined you can give her a stuffed animal to cuddle with and not feel so lonely, you can also give her a mirror if you want. To keep her occupied you can put scratch grain in her water so she has to sift around in it.
