We got two ancona ducks with our great pyr puppy (15 weeks) to train him to guard them and other poultry. I have not put them together yet, but they have pens next to each other in the barn. The female duck has some how gotten out of her pen a few times before I go in in the morning (never have figured out how she got out). This morning she got out again and was in the dog's area and he had gotten a hold of her and chewed on her neck. I got her and brought her into the house, ran water over the wounded area, then applied neosporin to the red spots on her neck. There were no gaping wounds, almost no blood, but her neck looks really raw. I put her in my shower with a couple towels, water and food. She is quiet, but will get up when you enter the room and she is drinking her water and eating her food... but when I have gone in to check on her and change her water, I swear I can hear her heart beating - fast and loud. Anybody have any thoughts on this? These are my first ducks since I was a little girl and have never had to deal with an injured duck. It was a hard morning for her. When I herded her partner to the pasture, I found her first egg in the pen. Broke my heart.
