duck egg bound

by Lisa
(Three Rivers, Michigan)

My duck was egg bound she passed the egg but still is not acting normal, still has her butt pointed down, holds her wings out, she is eating, drinking, swimming. But not as active. I work for a small animal vet clinic and we gave her baytril inj. And calcium inj. We did an x-ray and saw the egg (she has passed that) but she also has a washer and a small nail in her, what should we do?

Your bird needs surgery to remove these items. They are likely toxic, but they can also cause damage to the GI tract.
