Customer Question

I have a 6 month dormer sheep,who went down on his front end Thursday evening. Friday morning his hind legs will not hold any weight either. He continues to eat, drink, urinate and have bowel movements. His eyes are still shiny and he attempts to move by moving his legs while lying on his side. I have given him nutritional supplements, and mineral block,Penicillin and LA 200. Not sure what if anything I can do for him.
