Hello, We have a problem with our older 7 year old New Hampshire Red. Exactly a week ago she suddenly developed a crippled foot and at the same time terrible diarrhea. What makes this condition strange I think is that she is completely happy in every way except for being crippled and not pooping. Her comb, eyes look great. She grooms herself. She clucks in a content manner. She drinks and eats. She has a TERRIBLE odor to her that smells like death and yet she remains alive and looking great! It just doesn't make sense to me. I have injected her with mineral oil because after her first bout of diarrhea she quit pooping for days. I've also given antibiotics. We don't plan on taking her to the vet. It's just too expensive and she is quite old even though she's an adored pet. In all the research I've done, online and with friends. i've haven't found anything that explains this. Her foot remains crippled but has not progressed to other body parts. She can move it at the hip but cannot move the toes at all. It's like they are totally numb. You can touch and pet her anywhere and she's not in any pain whatsoever. Strange huh? Thanks!!
