    I need some feedback. I've got a male goose that is listless, bill doesn't close completely, eyes not bright and open, seems unsteady on his feet. His vent is very dirty. I tried to clean the vent and there doesn't appear to be any obstruction. He gets in the pool and dunks his head, but I can't tell if he's able to drink. Any advice would be helpful.

    Might be parasite over-load or a bacterial or viral infection.

    You could try deworming him and/or putting him on antibiotics.
    Best thing to do would be to take him to your vet.
