Duck Delight

What a difference in the injured duck after 2 weeks treatment. She can now fly which was my main concern, her ability to escape too many amorous drakes at this time of year is vital.

The injury which originally caused all her problems was a damaged right wing, 

this meant she could not fly to escape amorous drakes resulting in lacerations to her back.

These have now healed after saline baths, antibiotics, and antibacterial cream. She will be released once her back has new feather growth showing.

                            I am delighted with the results !
