    hi all i need your help. My Drake has gone off his legs. I have wormed him, given him niacin and multi vitamins after stupidly changing the food. I thought i was doing good by buying more expensive supposed to be better food. Now my poor boy is off his legs.

    Also lost a duckling today because of a bloody grass seed. Totally devastated.

    Sorry for bad language but I'm a bit upset.

    Please help x

    Hi and welcome to BYC:frow We're so happy you've decided to join us:ya I wish it was under better circumstances @Ravynscroft can you pop over ? While we wait, can you tell us more about his symptoms, is he eating and drinking? What exactly is he being feed? What's his poop like? Can you post pics of him and his poop?
     
  9. Welcome to BYC! Sorry to hear about your duck :(
