    About a week and a half ago l noticed that one of my drakes would not put wait on his left leg l brought him inside and hoped it would heel on its own l have been letting him swim in the sink once a day if you have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated

    Oh thank you,
    It's showing up now.
    It sounds like bumble foot?
    Hopefully someone else can help too.
    But from what I know that's what I think it is.
    Goodluck,
    Fionn.

    A good duck vet is best - but not always possible.

    He may be special needs if it is seriously injured. When you hold him, does the leg hang the same was as the other one? Do you have photographs you can upload?

    So l talked to the vet and it would be $100 just to get him in that's with out medical expenses or the cost of surgery if need be and as much as l would like to be l am in no financial state to [​IMG]. He is constantly holding his leg out behind him.
