Walking on knuckles
« on: December 12, 2022, 02:54:43 pm »
I have a ten month old lamb who randomly one day has started walking knuckled over on one of her back legs.

Spoke to the vet who has suggested nerve damage and not much treatment as clearly not in pain but walks as though she is lame. I want to try and splint it so that it doesn't knuckle over- she sometimes walks on it, maybe 1 step out of 10 so i know that she can.

Has anybody had any experience with this?
