    yes water therapy is good for him. as long as he doesn't have to jump down from too high.

    Keep us updated on his progress. also limiting his running around, rest and water therapy is both good.

    Injuries take time to heal, just like when we pull a muscle or sprain a leg it takes time. Rest. and good quality feed fresh water and poultry vitamins will help him recover quicker, but rest and water therapy will help the most.
