387 Vets nurse saves duck hit by car


Our head nurse Nicky was driving home when she witnessed a duck knocked down by a car. He was lying motionless in the middle of the road, so she pulled over, was able to establish the duck was breathing, put it in her car and brought it back to the practice for treatment. Fortunately the duck had only sustained concussion and a grazed leg. He stayed overnight at a local bird sanctuary to make sure he was well enough to ‘go home’ the following day. And he’s now out and about again. That’s one lucky duck!
