To make a long story short, one of our roosters viciously attacked my pet Duck, Daisy. He almost killed her and severely injured her from the top of her head all the way down the back of her neck. The wound covers a large area. We took her to the only vet hospital within a 2 hour ride that would treat her on Saturday (the day it happened) and again on Monday. They told us to clean the wound every day with gently running water and keep the area bandaged. The also gave us a tub of silver sulphurdiaxinine cream to put on it. She gets pain medicine once a day and antibiotics twice a day. She is eating and drinking. The problem is we cannot get the bandage to stay put. We are using nonstick pads and vet wrap to wrap her neck. As soon as we put it on her she starts stretching her neck, shaking her head and preening her feathers which makes everything loosen and slide down her neck. The vet hospital was closed yesterday and today so I can't get in touch with anyone that know about birds/ducks. We finally gave up last night and left the bandage off but she is rubbing her neck against her back and the whole wound is just looking really bad. The vet told us that if infection did not set in, she would recover so of course I am frantic that it is already infected or that by this issue with the bandage it will get infected. I am truly heartbroken that this has happened to her. I never would have dreamed a rooster would be capable of doing this. Does anybody have any suggestions as to keeping her neck wrapped or is it ok to just try to keep the cream on it as much as possible? We take her back to the vet tomorrow.
