You may recall that Mrs. Duck was exhibiting strange symptoms over the weekend. We quarantined her, medicated with a broad spectrum natural remedy, and waited. She seemed better after a few days and we let her out. She walked around quacking for a bit and then sat down and did her neck-hangy thingie. It looks like this:
Except she’s sitting, not standing. Unfortunately, if you follow the link, it seems to be a clear case of what they call “limberneck”. Or in french, “botulism”. Okay, that’s not french. Isn’t “limberneck” friendlier? And happier? Much.
But, just in case it is a duck version of Crookneck, which I dealt with in Anti-Squeaky when she was young, we are dosing her with vitamin E and waiting again.
If it is botulism, she’s had the symptoms for about five days now, although she was acting a bit wonky two days earlier. so all told about a week. From what I read, she’ll either survive it or she won’t. I don’t know how she picked it up; Everyone else is okay.
Here’s to a happy ending.
