    my wry neck duck seems to have gotten some of his formula in one nostril. the other is clear. hes breathing through his mouth, but he acts like nothing is wrong. he preens & stretches & plays. is there any way to clean his nostril? i tried wiping it with warm water & it didnt help.

    Can you use a pair of tweezers to pull it out? I don't know just throwing this out there as I have never had that problem.
