Well today was a hard day 😩
He was due to get his cast off today, vet called out and holding the calf down while the vet was cutting it off.
Eventually got the cast off and...the bone hadn't fused at all... felt very loose.
Had two options, put another cast on for another 4/5weeks or put him to sleep... The duration his cast was on it should have fused even a little and been more sturdy, but it hadn't. It was like the bones had just become worn and smooth and it wasn't going to get better. Had to make the hard but right choice to put him to sleep ☹️ Just utter disappointment and upset today 😢
He was doing so well, so full of energy and just a lovely healthy calf.
