Please help! My ducks leg has been swollen but she was walking around still and I figured she was fine… well a few days ago I noticed her laying down a lot and when she tried to walk she couldn’t well… I’ve been soaking her in warm epsom salt bath once a day and keeping her in a little crate alone.. I was wondering if I give her ibuprofen how much should I give her! Thank you! And any advice on how to treat her would be appreciated too! TIA💓

The swelling is actually in both legs. I think at this point you need vet care. No on the ibuprofen it can be fatal.
With chickens you can put 5 aspirin a gallon of water (not ibuprofen or acetaminophen), I'd imagine that would be ok for ducks. But this looks septic and needs more care than just a pain reliever.
