We awoke this morning to find one of our ducks in the pen with a gash on her neck. The pen is lined with electric fence and even hardware cloth along the bottom, except at the door, where we found feathers outside... It looks as though her neck skin has been torn apart, she wasn't bleeding too bad, it looks deepest at the bottom... We flushed the wound with betadine and wrapped it with some gauze to stop the bleeding and had her in a box with a heating pad and water in a dark room as she was understandably upset. She is not used to being held though and its difficult to keep her still and calm while trying to hold her. We ended up putting some water in the tub and putting her in as she wasn't drinking at all. She immediately splashed about, cleaning her face and drinking! The bath helped clean out the wound so I could see it better, it seems to be just the skin/ muscle at the top, which I'm hopeful is a good thing? I grabbed some vetercyn from TS along with some electrolyte powder for her water. She has been drinking and snacking on salad greens, and she's able to move around and hold up her head just fine. She was laying down earlier when I had her in a box with straw, but now in the tub (lined with towels) she only stands, I tried to move her onto the towels but she only wants to stand by the water bowl on the bare floor... I want her to rest but she won't lay down ... I have placed food by her water and she ate a bit. Here are some pics of the wound, I'm wondering if we continue to keep the wound clean if its likely to heal up? Any advice would be helpful! Also, if there is something more we should be doing to help her out! I have tried on 2 other occasions to work with different vets and no one has any knowledge of poultry, and short of driving 2 hours to the nearest college there's not much else help around here!
