So Wilma has bumblefoot. I have been bathing and wrapping and putting neosporin on. I hasn't gotten any worse. I even think I have another ointment that I have used the last couple of days that might even be working better than neosporin. I have not dug out any "seeds" not enough hands and the biggest bumble is more like a growth sort of thing. This photo is before I had done any sort of treatment. My questions are: Do I have to get the "seed" out to get it to heal? If so the biggest bumble would have to be completely cut off to even find a "seed". The smaller ones on the other toes I can see where a scab could be peeled back. Maybe it isn't bumblefoot because of it not being in the center of the foot? I bought Fish Flex (cephalexin) 250mg. Would that help to treat her even if I don't see systemic infection? How much and how long would I give it to her? Is it like forcing a pill down a dogs throat? Or should I wait until she is super hungry and spread it over her food and get her to eat it that way? I know Bumblefoot has been posted about a lot and I appreciate all the information available and everyones help. These are my first pet ducks and never have had this problem with my chickens or the farm ducks that I have noticed. It has been so wet and rainy here this season. I cannot wait to have some dry weather to get out and give the yard and pen a good cleaning and let everything dry out. I am also expecting shoes coming from Nettie soon so that way they can run about the backyard and I won't worry so much about the pine needles that we have all over the backyard. Thanks everyone!
