Hi everyone, My drake has come down with a bit of a problem. He has an enlarged and rigid abdomen, and can hardly walk. He spends most of his time laying down now. I took him to the vet last weekend, and she said it might be constipation and gave him some laxitive, which hasn't worked. I've read that it might be hardware disease (eating something metal which blocks him up and toxifies him) but without an xray and surgery, there is no cure. I'm not going to have a duck anethetised and operated on. To be honest, I didn't think he would last this long, but he is still alive and eating well. Does anyone have any suggestions apart from the obvious? Paula.
