    I have a 8 white ducks. About two weeks ago one came home with a pretty bad limp.
    I have babied her along.
    She will go with the others for a litle while but she knows she can't keep up and will come back home.
    A couple of days ago I noticed that the leg was swollen ( in the joint and above ) and when I caught her, it felt hot.
    I have given antibiotics (pill form) to chickens and shots (with LA200) to cattle but have never given a shot to any of my feathered friends.
    I have seen the LA200 work miracles and I know it would help her.
    I just don't know what size needle to use or where to give the injection. I can probably figure the dosage.
    Anybody familiar with Ducks...Help!

    I'm sorry to hear about that problem. I'm bumping this to see if someone might be able to help. You may want to update the title to be specific to the type of issue.

    I hope it all turns out well!
