Almost two weeks ago I picked up my 4 year old Pekin Duck. He squirmed from my hands and fell to the concrete. Immediately I knew something was wrong. It was a decent height and he hit his head pretty hard. I think he has a concussion. He doesn't seem to be able to move, or stand up correctly like one side just doesn't work. So I put him in the basement in the dark to rest. He seemed to be getting better, quacking, eating, trying to stand, so the other night, Friday, I took him out at night and gave him a bath. Since then he hasn't moved, wont eat or drink. I don't know what happened. What should I do? Any vitamins or supplements I can put in his water? I now feel like he isn't going to make it and I feel awful because it's all my fault. Also, going to a vet really isn't an option. I did that once before for another duck and $270 later he gave me some "medicine" sent me on my way. The other duck didn't make it, I can't afford to go to the vet. Any help would be appreciated!
