I have a wounded duck. (Here's the full story https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=595207.) I am still not sure if she is going to survive her injuries, but I am trying to plan for her eventual recovery. She is part of my free range waterfowl flock, so she is not used to being handled. The stress of the injury, the isolation from her flock, the forced closeness with humans (she's inside the house in a small cage) have made her life a living hell...and it's been less than a day. She needs to go back to her flock as quickly as is possible. Her wounds are- - A 2 inch flap of skin around her neck has been partially removed. It has been cleaned, steri-stripped closed as much as possible, and currently has thick layer of Neosporin, Telfa and Vet Wrap holding it all together. This is just a flesh wound, but is the most problematic due to the size. - A puncture into the adipose tissue of her neck where her neck meets her body. It has been cleaned and Blukoted. This one looks OK and should be fine. - A moderately severe crush injury to her neck and throat. This one is the one that may kill her. She is having difficulty forcing air through the swelling in her throat. She has laryngeal damage and cannot quack at all. Her breathing is labored, wheezy, and sounds like there may be some fluid building up in her throat. I fear she may have a puncture in her windpipe, but I can't find it. I have looked carefully, but cannot see any air escaping. She cannot swallow at this point, although she is puttering around in her water. She will remain inside until this injury heals or I decide she needs to be put down. My question is about the first injury, which is going to be the hardest to deal with in the long run. If she survives, can I use Liquid Bandage/New Skin to keep the largest wound sealed up. She is constantly in the water, so I need to find a dressing that can withstand some harsh treatment. I also am unsure whether I will be able to catch her again once she is released into her flock and starts feeling better, so I want something that I won't have to fuss with much/at all. I have seen this type of dressing used on the feet, but never on such a large wound around the throat. I am unsure if it is appropriate to use in this instance. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
