In the Brooder
- May 19, 2015
We have 2 ducks (approx 2 mo. old) one started limping, then appeared to injure it's other foot. His hock joint is swollen and hot, no bumblefoot that I can tell, although could be early signs..middle toe swollen a few brown specks at tip of back claw. We've been giving our ducks niacin suppl. Don't think that's the issue. We have another with no problems in same environment. Bought vetericyn and applied it 2X a day, also gave 3 rounds of penicilin injections (1/4 cc 1X day) He was better and started standing but we read not to continue more than 3 days. He declined greatly again. How much penicilin? How long? any other suggestions?
