What about gape worms?
Crunching in the mouth. Be careful that her mouth isn't injured already. @amiga I know you're not a goose gal, but you know people and have ideas..... @learycow any ideas/tags? @jtn42248
Possibility she would be gaping and having trouble eating .
Here is some info that might help get her stable till we can get hold of @casportpony
My first question is - could she be having more than one issue? The limping may or may not be related to the other symptoms....
Egg binding? Egg yolk peritonitis? Something is stuck to the roof of her bill? Those are some of my first thoughts. Liver problem? That could be related to toxicity.
This might help with checking her mouth . . . https://www.facebook.com/MajesticWa...0836389340489/824960470928077/?type=2&theater
rlasseter can you tell us what you saw when you looked into her mouth? Do you know of a vet that would test a fecal sample of her. (her poop)
Good point. I can take fecal samples to my local vet even though they are not waterfowl specialists - and they can run tests on the poop, much less expensively than an office visit, too. Good point, pattyhen.
Thank you Amiga.
I didn't see anything that looks abnormal in her mouth, but I have never seen the inside of a goose's mouth either... There was a little green near the tip of her tongue and along both sides of the top of her mouth.
Is that normal?
Her poop looks like it has bubbles in it now. I stressed her out so much, I just filled up another hot bath for her! It seems to be the only time she feels good
