Default Dislocated shoulder?

I think the doeling from Thursday's terrible kidding has a dislocated shoulder....

Is there anything I can do about it?

She is eating well.
Not showing signs of pain.
She can't use the leg at all.

Becca thought it was broken... considering the birth circumstances... I think dislocated.

OK this was on an old post abt a doe but may apply here Vicki said "If you bend her leg at the knee, up tight against her body and push the shoulder and leg forward while straddling the doe it will pop the shoulder back into the socket. "
I would give some banamine before doing this.

Lynn hold her up against your chest tight with one hand and use the other to bend the leg and jerk up tight against her twards her neck. Heck I don't know. Vicki's Amy was a train wreck and didn't lift her head or neck for a month because we pulled the muscles could it be that this is just a muscle problem?

I honestly don't know... the leg in question swings freely.

She'll get up on her other 3 legs and I think...trying to recall she is on her knee on that leg....

Interestingly.... this doeling is from Carmella... who is out of Amy.

OK I had not seen it, but Becca says she does get up on all 4 legs, but does not put weight on the 1 leg.

I may be foolish... but I want to keep this doeling. I love Carmella's milking... and I want to see if this breeding makes any improvement in her kid over Carmella's kidding issues...

No had not really felt around... I will do so as soon as Samuel detaches. It has been crazy here since her birth.

On a tiny one like this I would think you can just lay her down or hold her and massage that shoulder around.
