    I want to soak my poor duckie, but i am worrying about her drinking epsom salt in her water. Is it okay? Or should i hold her to prevent her from drinking it?

    I would want to contact a vetrinarian to be sure. A small amt probably wouldn't hurt though. In people it is a laxative, and it is also safe for goldfish. . .

    Do not let her drink it.
