    I have a pekin duck that I've been nursing a bumble foot but now she has a new problem. She is limping really bad. Can ducks sprang thier ankle? VideoCapture_20190210-100813.jpg VideoCapture_20190210-100550.jpg

    Definitely a swollen toe. The bumble foot looks fairly early and could cause the limp. Is the vet an option? I got antibiotics for mine and she stopped limping in about 7 days.

    Soaks in warm Epsom salt water may help with swelling . Can we get a better pic of bottom of the foot? Maybe this is an injury. No drinking Epsom salt water it also works as a laxative.

    Looks like either an infection or an injury does her skin feel warmer on that leg and foot than the other one ? Not sure if this is bumble is that an injury like a cut on the right side of middle toe on the bottom of her foot?

    She had a small bumble there but still you see right above that. It's where her ankle is the bend. It red with no sign of lasseraion. It does have fever . Can ducks have a fever? Her lil duck bill seems very warm when she was laying on my chest. Her bill was on my cheek ?

    I've been soaking her foot just about every day for about 20 min in warm Epsom salt.
