I knew a very young boy a few years back with legs that looked like that. I was concerned enough to speak to the mother about it and she said she has been to the a pediatrician and he seemed to think it would grow out. I lost touch with them so never saw how he turned out. But here's hoping for your little goose.

He didn't make it.

This morning both tendons were very badly slipping and he couldn't stand at all. I couldn't splint both legs.

His tib/fibs were very badly deformed on both sides. They were so curved that I don't think he could have grown out of it.

I reluctantly handed him over to be put down out of my sight. I couldn't do it myself.

Hello, I seem to have a month old gosling with this problem. I need to know how to splint and wrap it. Are there any pictures somewhere? Thanks, Sylvia.
