Hen With An Extremley Swollen Leg Around Ring

Recommended Posts

I was visiting a friend today and noticed a bird with a really bad swollen leg.It's so badly swollen that you cannot even see the bottom of the ring.She has taken it inside and bathed it in vinegar and water,and has applied and antispetic cream but we were wondering is there anything that will help reduce the swelling fast so she can cut of the ring.

Thanks.

I know this will sound unusual, but i have had success soaking the swollen leg in listerine mouth wash 2 or 3 times a day, try to rotate the ring while soaking if possible. The antiseptic kills the infection, which reduces the swelling and allows blood to flow to and from the foot. Have had a couple of birds treated this way and not require the ring to be removed.

Thanks Bad Hair Day, that is unusual i'll text her and let her know. I'll be going to her house later on today will let you know how she goes.

Many Thanks Libby.

Hello I would advise a trip to a vet. Useful advice from myself & other well meaning members

would be only guesswork at best as we cannot see the problem first hand. ....B.J.
