    I have a month old Pekin duck, at the beginning of the week, maybe Tuesday the 14th my duck started limping and acting like his one foot was paralyzed. Now today he’s currently inside away from the other ducks and we believe it’s Botulism, he can’t move/ walk at all his neck is very limp and he is panting. Even his feet and beak is hot to the touch. It just feels like he’s getting worse. We have fresh food and water always by him and soak him in epsom and put drops in his water and makes sure he eats and drinks. We syringe him stuff people told to give him every 2 hours. Will he get better or do we need to do more stuff? :hit

    Are you providing Niacin supplementation ? There is a possibility it may be Niacin deficiency.
