    Hello,

    I have a 7 month old Pullet with Possible Slipped Tendon. She is eating and drink ing normal and has been separated. Her hock is swollen and her shank is pointed outward at the hock. The tendon is on the side of the leg. She cannot bend her foot. When she tries to bear weight, her leg moves out from under her. She is moving fairly well on one leg and does not seem to be in pain but I have been giving her aspirin (81 mg) daily. Any advice on bringing down the swelling? Any advice on moving the tendon into place since it is sideways? I have posted some pictures:
