Hi, I have an adopted goose that has been having a real hard time this past week. She's been responding well to force feeding and niacin supplements, but I feel she's still in pain a bit, and I'm not sure of any safe pain relief for waterfowl. So, what has happened is we think she may not of been eating as much as we thought and suffered a niacin deficiency. She's spent the last week sitting and standing on her hocks and 'screaming' whenever she tried to stand on her feet, like the joints near her shanks were causing her pain. She still acted totally normal aside from that. Now she's back up on her feet after force feeding 3 times a day, 60mL each, for roughly a week and is walking around. I still feel that, however, she's feeling some discomfort in her joints. It may also be worth mentioning that she's going through a very heavy molt right now. Her neck and head has already molted out and the feathers are coming back in nicely, but the base of her neck, thigh covers, tail, and wings have yet to shed, and the rest of her body is pretty bare as it hasn't grown back in yet after molting out. Is there any safe pain reliever for waterfowl? I picked up some infant ibuprofen in hopes that the small dose may be safe, especially since it's liquid and easier to measure in even smaller doses than intended, but I'm not sure? Also, does anyone have any good advice on packing weight on a goose in a healthy manner? She came to us a bit underweight. We read that mixing crumbles and vegetable oil sometimes help, but it just did not work. She wasn't eating it like we thought she was, the other geese must of been eating at it and pigging up. We've since isolated her and gave her normal crumbles and she's been eating that fine, she just does not care for oiled crumbles. This is what I picked up. Not sure if it's safe. Any advice on the situation, weight gain, and safe pain relievers is appreciated.
