I'm not sure what happened but here she is.
Do you have any details you'd like to add? Is she putting any weight on it? What does the leg feel like?
If it looks like a clean, straightforward break you can probably splint it yourself, but personally I'm more inclined to seek veterinary help with broken bones.
She doesn't put any weight on it. But it doesn't feel broken. It just looks twisted.I'm not sure what happened but my sisters aggressive doe might have had something to do with it.
If it looks crooked or twisted then it's probably broken. It may not feel loose because the tendons are holding everything more or less in place. I'd stabilize it with a splint for tonight and keep her penned up with a gentle buddy so she can't injure it further, and then I'd get her to a vet in the morning.
Ok,I got her penned up with her mom for the night.
Get a vet to look at her.
ok,so it was broken. And her sister tried to escape and get to her. And broke her leg. 200 dollars later they are both penned up with broken legs.
Oh dear, monkey see, monkey do.
I am so sorry that happened.
Glad they were seen.
Thank you for quick vet action. I tell people all the time who want to "wait and see" to pass the time digging a hole.
I'm sorry you ended up with TWO goats with broken legs. Bummer! I hope they heal quickly for you.
Wow, so sorry you have 2 with broken legs.
I am just glad that they are doing well.
Holy Moly! (((((Hugs)))))
The whole reason they were penned up in the first place was so that I could further treat their mother because she was wormy. And this is what happened. The joys of being a goat farmer.☺
Oh I know.
Oh, my! You surely did not need the complication of yet another "patient". It's good you were on top of the situation. I feel it will turn out well.
Yup,they are healing nicely.
