    Sorry to hear that your duck isn't doing too well. Dog food doesn't usually cause long-term problems; she probably ate too much (resulting in vomiting). Offer plenty of clean water, cool water if it's hot outside and lukewarm if it's cold. She should recover soon, but still monitor her condition. Good luck!

    i feed mine cat food as a healthy treat so its weird

    Is it medicated dog food?

    Duck shouldnt be affected by dog food unless it ate too much

    No
    No it's not medicated. But I was concerned because she wasn't acting the same as always I had to be sure

    Are there any weird ingredients in the dog food? Even so, I agree with everyone else. I give it to my geese as treats. She should be okay. :)

    If she has never eaten it before, her stomach may be upset.

    My birds love dog food and really pig out on it so I have to be careful how much they get. They get it as a treat along with mealworms and 6 way scratch
