This morning we straightened little guys leg - gently but firmly and then splinted it.

He's eating well and drinking and has a little sibling in with him.

I also went to our vet and got some antibiotics because his leg was all raw from him laying on it.

Once the splint was on, his toes straightened out just fine.
