Hey folks, Charley, my 5 month Pekin began limping last week. I noticed his leg was turned in and limping one morning. Immediately gave Epsom soak and found he had bumblefoot. It seemed pretty much on the surface. No swelling, or kernel. I removed the scab applied triple antibiotic ointment, wrapped his foot and placed him in a cat carrier inside. I did this 3x daily for three days and giving him lots of June bugs and started Puting an electrolyte and vitamin solution in his water. He seemed to be doing better and I started including vetericyn spray into his cleaning regimen as well. Allowing they vetericyn to soak into the areas where I removed the scab before placing ointment, gauze and vet wrap. I did this last on Sunday evening and wrapped his foot super well and allowed him to be out with his buddies. He still isn't found the best and I brought him in tonight for another soak, vetericyn and ointment treatment tonight. On the largest of the three bumbles a scab had returned which I removed. He had a very small one on his thumb, at least that's what I call it, which had gotten larger so I removed that and medicated as well. I placed him out with the chickens and his duck buddy for the evening and went to check on him to find, somehow, he had gotten the wrap off his foot. Ok so here are my questions.. In bumblefoot with a duck, how long do treatments typically take until you see alleviation of the issue? Has anyone ever seen a duck's leg turned in from bumble? His joints feel great, no swelling and no broken bones can be felt. However, leaving him with the wrap on his foot and a partially wrapped thumb has left him unable to move well and I saw an injury on his longest toe on the bumblefoot foot in between the top and last joint. A fairly gnarly little bruise. AND to make matters worse we are leaving to go on vacation for a week with only a teen neighbor taking care of the animals. Any and all advice is welcome and much appreciated.
