Swollen hock

Asked September 10, 2018, 12:25 AM EDT

How should I treat my 20 week old pullet with a swollen hock? I have been giving her a baby aspirin daily. It is getting worse and she is limping badly and holding her leg off the ground. It is warm to the touch. No other symptoms. Thx!

This could be one of several potential problems. You need to seek the help of a veterinarian that has knowledge of poultry. Not much can be done without a proper diagnosis and access to antibiotics.
