    Vet is out on a farm call all day. Can't see her until tomorrow.

    Just left the Vet. She gave her a shot of multi minerals and splinted her legs. Said to give her another week or so and see how she is. Fully expected to not be bringing her home. Hoping this works for her.

    Thank you. No improvement today. The more reading I do it seems like maybe contracted tendons. She was good until 2 was of age so that has me puzzled. She is healthy except for her legs. Hoping we see some signs of improvement over the next few days.

    I’m in the same boat. Mine went limp in back legs at 3 weeks old. We have also tried many things to no avail. Curious if you find something that works. Not sure how much longer husband will let me keep her in the house. We are going on 10 days with little improvement. We tried the bose and I also tried multimin for the copper portion. But hadn’t seemed to help.

    I wish I did have a great idea or answer for you. It is heartbreaking. Vet gave ours a shot of multi min and she is showing signs of improvement. She still wants to walk on her front knees but back lets are working better. Vet said it could take up to a couple weeks to see full improvement potential from multi min. I sure hope yours improves.
