Ask the Swan Specialist
Date: 6 February 2015
I am an avian rehabilitator in Iowa in the United States and I have a female swan in my care right now. I am estimating her age to be about 5 years old.
I am very concerned for her because she is currently only 16.7 pounds and is very weak and unable to stand. She also has no appetite. I was wondering if you could give me any ideas of what mixture I can use to tube feed her so she will start gaining weight (or perhaps start eating on her own).
Thank you so much for your time,
