About The Team

Domestic ducks suffer from a variety of foot and leg diseases that often leave the birds in chronic pain and require acute medical or surgical care and sometimes euthanasia.  This study aims to describe detailed duck leg anatomy in effort to help veterinarians provide better care and solutions to these common problems.

To define, in detail, the anatomy of the domestic duck leg.  Focus will be given to musculoskeletal, tendonous and ligamentous anatomy. Domestic ducks are plagued with arthritis, bumblefoot and leg infections.  This study is in effort to better define the anatomy for improved medical and surgical treatments.

More Info

Donated money goes to the 501(c)3 the Tia Greenberg Foundation for Exotic Animal Research in Huntington Beach, California and is used to fund approved studies.

The Comprehensive Anatomy Research Project was established by Dr. Scott Echols in effort to use advanced imaging tools to study anatomy of animals.  This fundamental science is essential for proper care of wild, collection and companion animals and is missing for most the species under our care.

Multiple scientists (veterinarians, medical doctors, anatomists, biologists and more) are part of the Project.  Each researcher, or research team, works with submitted species with the ultimate goal of publication.  Focus is given to describing the anatomy and, in many cases, applying the information for clinical use in effort to improve animal care.

There are numerous studies already underway and funded.  However, we need assistance funding several projects.
