This little chap came in after being found out during daytime, dragging one of his back legs.

He was taken to Upton Vets for a check, and a subsequent X-ray shows he has an almost healed break to his right back leg, which has set at a bit of an angle.

It was decided to leave him as he is at present, and for him to be reviewed later. If the leg appears to be hindering him or causing pain, it will probably have to be amputated. In the meantime, he will receive the best of care.

Thank you to Emily at Upton vets for the picture of the X-ray.
