Swelling is decreasing somewhat, as long as the chick stays in the chair. Will baby aspirin help decrease swelling further?
Eating and drinking very well. Have been giving Poly Vi Sol a few times a day and in the water.
When I did catch the chick out of the chair, it seemed as if it could use that leg a little more, and it's not as much to the side as it was before.
Trying to put the tendon back in place a few times a day, but the swelling makes it difficult to see/feel it.
Not to hopeful but doing everything I can, I hate to see a being suffer.
I don't think I would give baby asprin to a baby chick. Baby asprin are used for full grown chickens, so it will be too much for a chick. The chick really doesn't need a pain med. Just continue with the vitamins and what you are doing. Some daily physical therapy would likely be more helpful. Help him stand and walk on it's own, put back in chair. When you feel he is getting stronger, you can try the bandaid method for splayed legs on him. That way his strong leg will help keep the weak leg in place.
