    We have a keet that has a slipped tendon. We did not realize that was the problem at first. We thought he had spraddle leg because he was doing the splits. So the legs were taped with no improvement. So I kept researching and it appears to be a slipped tendon with both legs and it has been a few weeks. Is there anyway to correct the problem at this stage? His lower leg appears to have rotated and he kinda scoots along.

    U have tried everything with this injury as I have had two or three over the last three years. I even had one that managed to get around for a time. No matter what I have done, I can not repair the problem and eventually the little one has to be culled. It is sad and I hate making that decision.

    Thank you for answering. I feel that I will have to cull him. He is much smaller than the other keets the same age. I just wanted to try anything I could.
