    I have a year old ee roo. Today we noticed his spur is wobbly with dried blood around it's base. I sprayed it with Vetericyn. We do have some younger Roos about 4 months old so there was most likely some sparing going on. Do injured spurs heal or is something he may lose?

    Well I know you can twist the hard outer part of the spur all the way off and then it will grow back and that is fine so I’m sure he will be ok it may fall off and start growing again

    One of mine broke both of his spurs off. One never grew back and the other grows at a funny angle.

    I've had others break them and they grew back fine.
