    I disbudded a doeling today that should have been done a few weeks back . I applied the iron on both sides cut the horn buds off and stopped the bleeding . Between cutting and cauterizing the doeling fell down . I thought maybe from pain ? I squeezed to tight ? Lack of air ?? A million things ran thru my head. She did not want to use her back legs at all. We let her lay down for a few mins. She then will stand but stands and walks like she is trying to pee or poop.

    I gave her banamine and bo-se . I have never had this happen any ideas ???

    And of course this is 1 I sold and they brought her back to be disbudded. I feel really bad.

    You likely pinched a nerve holding her, there is no way disbudding did this. My husband broke a kids lip and made it bleed disbuding for a person before. I burnt the ear once also :) She will be fine. Vicki
