    Hello,

    My house duck has some sores on her feet. She lives inside, so my guess is that her feet are just dry. I do not believe that she has bumble foot, there is no swelling. Is there any type of salve that is safe to put on her feet? And should I try to cover them? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

    Sores on the feet worry me a little. If you can upload a photo, please do.

    Something is irritating or injuring the feet. Are there things they are walking on that are puncturing the feet? Are there cleaning compounds on the floor that are causing them to break out?

    Have they been in the tub with hot water running?
