    My female duck has a really swollen leg took her to vets who said he don't think it's broken or something like gave her antibiotics which sorted it out for abit but the swelling is back and she is dubious about walking on but she does when she wants to, iv been giving her warm baths which she enjoys but the swelling don't seem to change she's happy in herself tho no noticeable cuts or anything either any thoughts?

    I would take her back to the vet. An x-ray could be necessary to make sure there isn't a hairline fracture.

    She's due back Tuesday for more antibiotics, I can feel it clicking when I check her leg and to see if the swelling hasn't gone further up her leg, which it hasn't but don't understand how the vet didn't notice?
