    Do they exist? Any vaccines appropriate for ducklings? If they do exist when is the right time to do them?

    Ducks are not like dogs cat requiring vaccinations at set times while young. Provide a proper diet, clean water daily for swimming and drinking, a secure house to locked in over night so predators don't get them and they and you will both be happy.

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    I was reading stuff like this

    Quote:
    vaccination against Salmonella enteritidis and S. typhimurium infections may
    be undertaken as part of a salmonella
    control strategy, although S. typhimurium is also a duck pathogen in its own
    right.

    and thought that it's something we all have to do.
