Abstract:

A one year old female duck was presented with the history of lameless and swelling over the foot region. Close examination revealed swollen necrosed area of the lower part of the foot and it was diagnosed as bumble foot infection. Bumble foot is a skin infection in the bottom of a duck’s foot. It will soon, if not treated, run up the leg and into the body, leading to a severe septicaemic infection or even death. It starts by getting a small cut on the bottom of the foot, getting the infection through it and then leading to a black scab on the bottom of the foot. This case narrates the successful treatment and management of the condition by treating the affected part with 0.1% potassium permanganate solution and surgically removing the pus from the area. Antibiotic course along with other supportive treatment was given to the bird.
