Well, lets look at the bright side, nothing broken. Now, you have to do some homework to avoid hefty vet bills. First, try to examine on your own. Make him stand in front of you and slowly massage the whole leg. Watch his ears and his breathing. Can he stand on this leg? Does he tries to keep it up? Which part of the leg he shows pain? Does his breathing changes while you massage? If yes, when and where? Repeat the same when he is lying down. Any difference in reaction to the treatment? Cut down on the supplement you are giving, especially the calcium might do more harm then good. Give him genuine barf diet and slowly introduce one supplement at the time. I would recommend to add on the following 3 to 4 times a week only (but NOT to the RMB): 500 g of vitamin C, 100 mg multi-B vitamin complex, teaspoon kelp powder, teaspoon alfalfa powder, 500 mg fish body oil, tablespoon flaxseed oil, teaspoon cod liver oil, tablespoon unsulphured blackstrap molasses. RMB should be chicken necks and any other RMB should be tried out slowly and in stages. All veggie meals should be mixed with half a can of can fish (sardine) and one egg. Muscle meat should be mixed with one egg and twice a month including the shell. Organ meat should be mixed with three tablespoons of calf’s liver and one egg.
