    I have a baby silkie that's almost 2 wks old. Noticed s/he was limping and not moving around as much. I'm sure s/he's in pain. What can I do to help? I tried putting the baby in a donut shaped cloth so she could rest her leg but she keeps getting out. [​IMG] Not sure what happened to her leg or if it's broken or sprained. They have shavings for footing so I know it's not splayed leg. Please help me help her/him feel better
