I recently bought a pregnant doe and she had twins. The one baby is doing fine but the other one is walking on his rear pasterns. I did give both babies bose when they was 3 days old and he has gotten a little better but still walking on his pasturns. Can I give him more bose? If I can how long do I have to wait? Thanks everyone!!

Loose pasterns are usually from the doe's hormones. They straighten up naturally. You can give 1/2 cc vitamin B orally to energize the nervous system and bring them up faster.

How old is baby now? I like to give cod liver oil to help strengthen those tendons. Just get a single gel cap..poke a hole with a needle and squeeze in his mouth. You can also use vet wrap to offer some support. When wrapping. Don't be too tight and chexk often. Remove at night. Hold off on more BoSe for now. Don't want to over give
