I have a peacock that thinks he is a chicken, does that count? Snowpea is about 1 1/2 - 2 years old, and yesterday he got into a scuffle with a coyote. Amazingly, there are no obvious wounds, though the coyote pulled out mounds of feathers. I brought him to the vet today, who said she couldn't find any broken bones. He is not putting weight on one of his legs though, and sits back on his haunches or flopped to the side. If he tries to get up and move, he tips to the side and does a face plant. She gave him a steroid shot, and said if he was going to improve, it would be about 2 days. That was this AM, I just went out to check on him and his hurt leg is very cool, much cooler than the other. She mentioned that it was at the apppontment too, but I didn't feel it myself so I have no baseline. I don't know if we should be doing something else for him, or if this is just the beginning of the end. Anyone with any experience with hurt legs? Is having it feel cool normal due to swelling, and not a completely bad omen? TIA!!
