In the Brooder
- Aug 28, 2014
My duck just got attacked by something and she has a big gash/slash on her back between her wings. She has blood in her mouth and was breathing heavy... I fear she will die so I gave her a small dose of metacam to ease the pain... I'm worried to flush the gash (read gluconate but not sold in Canada) as I don't want to do more harm than good... I put her in a crate with straw in my spare bedroom with a big blanket over it. It's quiet and dark there and I gave her food and water. I feel sick and have no idea what to do next. How long do I wait I don't want her to suffer if she is going to die... Her breathing is no longer heavy and she had a sip of water. Any help/encouragement appreciated.
