After a month of antibiotics (Baytril) and doing the surgery on her, Mildred was looking really good. I did notice a small spot on her foot yesterday. Actually, very small. I have been checking her daily since we started this. Today I noticed her sitting down a lot. Sure enough her foot was swollen and the scab had grown. So we did the surgery again. Afraid this is going end up with having to cull a duck and after treating her since Jan 7 and checking her out every day since, it's going to be really, really, really difficult if it comes to that. (It would be really, really, really difficult for me anyway). The foot is swollen and there is a knot on the top of the foot as well. I am wondering if I should be cutting from the top as well? I honestly couldn't find anymore evidence of the cottage cheesy substance from below. And the top of the foot was much more sensitive when I was feeling the area. She was so good, but when I started probing the top of the foot she objected. . Anyone have any advice as to the top of the foot issue?
