    You said it was a waste. That just seems like kind of a fatalistic thing to say. You don't have a guarantee, no, but it's best to have a chance of saving it than none at all. The poor little guy isn't doing well and without immediate action, it's likely that he's going to die. I can't stand to see him suffer like this anymore...

    @Reese7383 , do what you can to keep him warm and quiet until you leave. When you do leave, might be a good idea to take him in a box on some warm water bottles. Keep in mind that a trip to the vet is often enough stress to send them over the edge. Whatever happens, don't beat yourself up. I will cross my fingers for you and hope that he make it thought the night and that whatever is ailing him can be treated in a cost effective way. [​IMG]

    I know what it's like to have a very ill duck - very painful. Could you please let us know what you have been able to do in the last few hours or so to help the little one? Do you have vitamins of any sort (poly-vi-sol, poultry vitamins, sav-a-chick, nutri-drench, brewer's yeast)? Are you holding him, keeping him warm?

    I assure you hi I'd warm... read somewhere online to hold a sick duck close to your heart and breathe on them moist air can be helpful so that's where I have him sitting in front of the heater. I keep offering him water but he won't take it is it bad to try and use a syringe
