    That's horrible! [​IMG] I don't really know what to do, but I think you really need a bump. [​IMG] I would try straightening the leg, then putting 2 popsicle sticks on either side of the leg, then wrap it in that medical tape stuff (is that what it's called?). Also give her some vitamins and electrolites in her water. I hope I helped. [​IMG]
