Is there an organic or natural antibiotic for ducks?
I don't know of any exact equivalents. There are some things that are said to have antibiotic properties, like oil of oregano, apple cider vinegar, and such, you would need to assess these claims for yourself. I use triple antibiotic ointment sometimes, and others have successfully used clear iodine for bumblefoot.
Saline solution seems to work well topically for cleansing and preventing infection.
Manuka honey is another topical substance that is antibacterial.
Are you needing topical or internal? I make a topical ointment that works as good (dare I say better) than Neosporin that's completely natural and uses essential oils for the antibiotic properties. There are recipes online if you're so inclined.
If you need internal, for like a cold or something, I'd use ASAP Silver Solution. It's a nontoxic version of colloidal silver and is perfectly safe for animals. Colloidal silver is another option but if you can have the same benefits without fear of toxicity, then why go there?
Thank you both.
