Buck mobility problem

537 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  toth boer goats
We have a two year old Saanen buck who during the last two months has started to have a bit of difficulty getting to a standing position. Sometimes walks on his front “knees” and once standing moves awkwardly. It seems to be all his legs not just front or rear. Arthritis? Any suggestions to diagnose, improve or correct? No other herd members show anything similar.

Check his feet thoroughly. Do you have white tail deer?
Get a vet right away, a few things come to mind and quick treatment should be started.
Thanks to all of you for your replies. The buck is unchanged in his condition.
