I guess I need to make a hobble for my duck. She was attacked by older male ducks and the left leg was hurt. When she sat down, the leg did not bend and just laid straight. I started bending it for her and now she sit with it bended like the other leg. I gave her physical therapy with the leg and would hold it in place when she stood up. Because she can now walk with a limp and stand up. Walking is difficult cuz she will overlap her feet on top of each other. How do I help this?? I always separate them and so one will not be over the other. I continue to treat her with vitamins, etc. But what can I do to keep the feet off each other?? Hobbles?? How do I make them?? She is isolated in a large cage with a friend. She has come a long way & glad I did not list to vet!! What do I do now to keep feet apart?? ThanXX in advance!
