Help! Dislocated Shoulder
I was shearing my Angora Goats and when i went to flip one of the girls on her side, her front leg got stuck and it dislocted at her shoulder. I took her to the vet and her gave her a sedative and during the examination her shoulder popped back in. The vet seemed to think that it would pop out right away again, and gave us enough pain meds to keep her over the weekend till they could fix her surgically on tuesday (the earliest they could do it). This happened yesterday, and I have kept her in a small confinment area to keep her calm and off her leg. The strangest thing tho, she is walking around just as happy as a clam, eating, drinking, trying to climb the fence, and looks normal. So now i dont know what to do? Do I take her in for an expensive and painfull surgury? She does not appear to be in any distress or pain, and i have not given her any of the meds yet. Has anyone experienced this before? do you think the shoulder would heal on its own?
