    I have a 6 week old white orphington that has a bad leg. Her claw is always clenched up and she doesnt use it. I noticed at 2 weeks the same leg was splayed out and she was getting trampled so i segregated her. She seemed to get better after a week so i put her back in with the others. Now it appears worse. She is able to eat and drink and hobble along. Any thoughts? Thanks
