Please help. I would like to know if I am doing everything I should be for my Gabby duck. She is about 16 weeks old. She was swimming in her pool this morning close to her shed and the house, when a fox attacked her! Luckily she gave it a good fight, but I had to get physically about 10 feet from it before it let her go. She has about a two inch gash above her right leg and kind of under her wing. I think most of it is the result of the fox pulling out her feathers, since a huge tuft was hanging off her. There does seem to be one spot that is deeper than the rest, darker red, but even that doesn't seem like a puncture, maybe where it tried to get a good hold, but my girl was fighting so much it couldn't hold her. She is drinking a lot and started eating a few hours after the attack. I have been treating my goose's bumblefoot with tricide neo and getting good results (the black is falling off exposing new skin!) so I have been pouring the solution on Gabby's cut every couple of hours. Just now when I touched her, though, she seems very hot. her whole body, beak and feet. I'm wondering if ducks might get a fever when fighting off infection? or is it because she's been penned up all day with no swimming water? (she does have pots of water and water dishes to dip into) Any information anyone can give would be so greatly appreciated.
