Goose with infected foot
by: Gary

Hi, Tracie. THanks for your advice on the goose with the infected foot. FYI there are no specialized vets within a couple hundred miles of where I live in Mexico, and none of the local vets knows any more than treating cows and burros. Could you please tell me what kind of antibiotics should be used? A salve or cream I wouldn't know how or where to five aq shot to a goose!!!) THank you for any additional information.

Bird with infected foot

Your bird needs an antibiotic, and Dr B can not prescribe over the Internet. You will need to Find an Avian Vet to examine and treat your bird.
