    :yesss: We are glad you joined this flock!
    Jump right in and make yourself at home.

    A vet can prescribe Meloxicam for pain and swelling.

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    Sorry to hear about your turkey. I can't imagine that bones were not broken if he was stepped on by a horse. Have you tried soaking his bad foot in cold water to try to reduce swelling?

    Poor turkey. The foot isn't going to heal correctly without setting it.
