i have tried to read everything i can on treating bumblefoot at home. The last duck that had bumblefoot i took to the vet. She did a great job, but it was over $350. Now i have another duck with bumblefoot, but no spare money. So far i have started her on Baytril 1ml twice a day. i have been soaking the foot in warm water with epsom salt once a day. Then i slather on the neosporin, wrap it, and put on a duck shoe to keep it dry and clean. She is staying in a hutch inside the house. i have tried picking at the scab and have trimmed some of the dark top layer off. i guess i was thinking the i could just lift out the infection. But the tissue is very fiberous and like it is part of the duck's foot. Is that fiberous material part of her foot or the infection? Also, i have seen pictures of bumblefoot surgery on chickens. But my vet said that ducks are very sensitive to pain, so wondering if home surgery is even possible with a duck. Would appreciate any input.
