    My duck has a scab on top of her foot, is it bumblefoot?

    Same here that is where it connects to the body I do believe
    frostbite or a wound that split it

    Will she be okay? I just got her a few weeks ago, but prior to me she was outside in very cold temps

    Some nice warm soaks in Epsom salt water to help with healing and Vetercyn spray(TSC) to keep infection from happening. Do not rub anything on her damaged skin. Your going to just have to wait patiently for the skin to slough off and hope she doesn't lose her toes or foot. So sorry about your duck also keep her dry and out of snow rain or ice while she is going through this it will help keep more complication from happening . If you can keep her inside that would be best.

    Could be and could be frost bite so caution should be used in case it is frost bite.Hard to say but looking at the foot something is def wrong for the skin to be peeling away like it is.
     
  10. Just make sure when doing the epsom salt she does drink the water, epsom salt is a laxative.
