Erika Eigenbrod, DVM, shares an emergency experience with Twizzler, a Pekin duck. As more chickens and ducks move into suburban areas, veterinarians will likely receive more calls like this one. Thanks for sharing your egg-perience Dr. Eigenbrod.

Being a doctor of veterinary medicine, your career, patients and situations will never happen in the idealistic way you might have once thought. I’m learning to embrace this, and I’m starting to think this could even be a perk of the job, says Eigenbrod. Never did I think I would be called to do an emergency egg extraction on a duck named Twizzler, but the bond between humans and their animals is amazing.
