I have a 16 day old who I believe has slightly splayed legs. At what age is it too late to tape them and try to reverse it?
Can you get a good picture of the two legs for comparison? Is the swollen leg the one that seems to be splayed or is it the other one? Or both?OK got him in the donut with no help from him! Funny how well he can use both the legs to kick and fight with me LOL!! Gonna wait for the hubby before trying to tape them.
Any thoughts as to why that one leg is so swollen and is there anything I can or should do for it?
OK. That's what I thought, but wasn't sure.......when I fix splayed legs, I use the band that's on the leg already and a snap band and a rubber band between the two. Taping will work and if that's easier, then do that.I will try to get better pics when we bring him in to tape the legs. But for now if you look at the first pic I posted the leg that is on OUR left is out and slightly forward but not swollen and HIS left leg is the swollen one and is kind of pushed back towards his butt.
Yes I do have snap bands.
Do you have access to a vet who could help you get that band off?OK just went to make sure he was still in his donut and the swelling on his leg is getting worse.
Earlier when I took the picture I could spin his band easily and now it is getting tight.
