    Hey everyone,
    I was hoping someone might be able to help my out. I have a bantam cochin that got attacked last night. I am not sure what got her she has two small scrape on her right leg that are bleeding. My main concern is that in right leg she has no feeling in and it does not look attached at the hock joint. If I hold her up her right leg just swings ever which way, she has no control. I got some pictures but it is taking it's time loading this morning. Any ideas on what I should do? Do you think there is a chance I can fix her leg?

    Thanks
    I will work on loading the pictures.

    at least isolate her and keep her still, she needs rest with feed and water. sounds like the leg may be broken, could you wrap in in vet wrap for some support or even use the old popsicle stick wrap for support. if you have some electrolyte solution add it to her water, it will give her a much needed boost, time will tell. good luck
