    Just started raising ducks a few months ago. Great success until today. From what I am reading this baby Rouen duck has right neck. I think I need to give vitamin D and prednisone. I live in a small town. Where do I get this stuff? Do I have to go to a veterinarian? I know I need to start treating immediately. Any advice would be awesome. Thank you so much.

    I believe prednisone is only given on vet's order & supervision when there is swelling around the brain. Otherwise it will not be of therapeutic use.

    G’Day from down under Bonnie2802 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, living in Aus, I too am not able to help with your question but I do hope that you are able to find the medication you seek and that your duckling makes a full recovery.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
