    Trina, good to see you posting, sorry about the kid. It sounds like mineral defficiency. You could give the BoSe daily.

    B vitamins are meaningless and another shot they don't need, on an infant, they arn't ruminating so B vitmains aren't important. Give her the E daily, give her bo-se daily. If you don't have much of this going on in your kid crop than it likely is an injury, did mom step on her, lay on her? Is her tummy warm and full? Milk mom and make sure she actually has milk.

    This sounds alot like what I was seeing in one of my friend's Boer cross doelings. I gave her a BoSe shot and vitamin E. I also held her and worked with her back legs. It took a few days, but she eventually began gaining strength and is now walking and playing like her brother.

    Yes just keep up the BoSE and E and hope it isn't an injury
