    Hate say it but have you put you smallest finger down the throat to feel for obstruction?

    What about giving the duckling some grit? My little duckling, Stevie, had a problem swallowing and I was advised to give B complex and grit. I did both but soon after I gave grit she got better. In my case there was no obvious lump, however her little crop seemed a bit fuller than normal. The experts are on board with providing you support. I would def. go with what they say. They are AWESOME! :love

    Grit is a good, but in this case I don't think it will help because grit only works in the crop. If this is an impacted crop, the grit should not be given, imo.

    And that's why I refer to you as one of the experts. Thank you for sharing. I learn something new everytime I get on BYC.

    Someone very skilled at giving oral meds might be okay doing it. If one drop is aspirated that probably means death due to lipoid pneumonia.

    Practice with water first.
