One of my bobs broke a leg this morning. Any suggestions on a course of action?
Keep an eye on him to make sure they others aren't beating on him. If they are pull him and cage him separate till it heals some, if he is able to get to food and water ok and no one's picking on him just let him ride the short bus of freedom and don't mess with him.
Thx for responding!
I took him out and put him in cage by himself as soon as I saw it. He has been sitting in the same spot all day. I put water and food on the other side of the cage but he doesn't seem interested. U think I should put him back? Also is there some medicine I can put on the cut he has on his leg?
For the cut use antibiotic ointment like neosporin. You can try to put him back where he was and see if thats better for him. Its hard with animals especially with broken legs. Their instinct sometimes is just to give up, so this may be why isn't eating or drinking. Or he just wasn't hungry.Good luck, hope he pulls through.
