    ive noticed my duck favoring her foot, (the only female out of 5 ducks) so I picked her up and it looks like her middle toe is swollen and has heat, I don't see any lacerations of any kind... I don't know what else to do, I have read to put triple antibiotic on the foot so I have done that... What do yall think is wrong???[​IMG]IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It could be Bubble Foot?

    I have spent the last few hours looking through these forums to see what it could be and that was one of the things I was wondering... I put triple antibiotic on the foot...what else should I do?

    I know that Bubble Foot is very common in chickens and ducks.
    To stop Bubble Foot you have to cute it out.
