    We have a pekin duckling with Wry Neck and have giving her vitamin E, Poly VI Sol and have given her a small injection of vitamin E with selenium. All of this has been given over 6 days. She's unable to stand but eats and drinks with no problems. Does Poly VI Sol have selenium in it? Is there anything else that we can do? We have become very attached over the past few days.

    One of our Silkies had this same problem. We gave her vitamin water/electrolyte water. I also was putting Vitamin E in her food daily. It took about two weeks for her to totally recover. I had read to crush Vitamin E and cook it in an egg to feed it her. I wasn't able to do that, I couldn't bear to feed her sisters eggs :) It would be like having her eat her niece or nephew :)
