While I was treating Bumblefoot with an Epsom salt soak, amoxicillin on the scab, and Neosporn, I noticed a keel sore on my duck’s abdomen. It’s a new scab I’m sure is attributed to her bumblefoot, and is not that deep. I was thinking of putting a sock over her abdomen, is that a good idea? Also, my duck has a bumblefoot caught early and a black scab. Does anyone have a better way to treat bumblefoot and get rid of the keel sore?

For the keel sore neosporin or triple antibiotic and nice soft bedding till she heals from the sore and foot. Poor thing that covers a large area. Veterycin spray for wounds and infection would be another for use on her keel.
