    Hi everyone,

    So our rescue ended up on Dr K national geographic FB live due to all his congenital health problems. (Heart, spine, feet, etc) One thing we are not sure about is if its too late to straighten his curled toes. As he gains weight, they are turning painfully to the side :( - We have purchased special boots to try to straighten them that are used for bumblefoot adding medical tape & some small cardboard to help keep straight inside, but wonder if it will not make a diff. Any suggestions?

    Thanks & we love our boy

    At his age I don't think toes can be "persuaded" to move
