Lamb with bent knees
« on: April 15, 2017, 09:05:46 pm »
Hi,

One of my Soay ewes gave birth to a ewe lamb this afternoon. Both her from knees are bent at almost 90 degrees and feel locked solid. Her right shoulder also feels like it is dislocated.
The poor thing can't get up at all so I have been helping her to suckle off her mother.
Our vet has said to help her feed, see how she gets on and take her in on Tuesday if no improvement.
This is my first time lambing so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
JB
