2 questions:

1) One of my does seems to have somehow either pulled off/ torn one of her scurs. There is blood around the area where it was...not a lot, but she is mostly white so it is visible. She isn't very keen in my trying to touch her on any occasion, so I couldn't feel to see what actually happened. Is there anything I should do for this?

2) I just picked up a 9yr old Nigerian Dwarf doe today. She is 'limping' on her back left leg. When walking nothing is noticeable but when she is standing she holds that leg in the air. Could it be arthritis?

I have a doe that bumps her scurs off all the time. I agree for the most part I do nothing but if the flies seem to bug her over it I just spray a little cut heal on it.

"She has had that limp since I've had her. I think it's an old injury, previous owner had horses, possibly from that? She doesn't let it slow her down and hasn't gotten worse over the years. Just less mobility than her other legs."

Is what the previous owner told me.
It seems weird that she doesn't put weight in it when standing, though
