    Hi all - I would really appreciate your thoughts and ideas. I have a 3 month old Pomeranian that suddenly is unable to stand. He/She was walking this morning and then a couple of hours after breakfast the whole group were calling --so I went to see. and the one gosling was unable to stand. I was able to check her over - no injury that I can see. When approached she "lifts up" and balances with her wings and goes a foot or so. She is "talking" to her family (all sitting around her) - I tried putting her in a pool- she wanted back out right away. She is currently sitting in the shade with food and water within reach. She has no other symptoms that I can see.
    Please let me know if you have any advice.
    thanks, Patsy

    sorry about the double post --- I thought it wasn't working the first time. - I don't know how to delete one of them.

    Are you feeding either game bird or waterfowl feed for the goose? Because that feed has the proper amounts of niacin in it to help with leg issues. If you are not feeding either of these feeds you need to get either brewer's yeast for animals or niacin to put into their feed if brewer's yeast or in the water if niacin.....
