So I went to check on my buns today and someone broke into my shed, and tied up my NZ buck Reebok's feet together like hogtied and he was stuck there with his feet drenched in urine. I am so infuriated right now you can't even believe. I put a lock on my shed door with a key lock. But there's no way he could have done this himself. It was knotted, like tied. I got the rope off and he's hopping around but his back (left I think) foot is swollen SO HUGE! I can't even believe there was someone out there who broke into ym shed and did this to ym poor animal. I borught Reebok inside but he's back outside in the shed in his cage right now. How do I treat a swollen foot. Please don't lecture about anything, I feel bad enough as it is, and I am SOOO mad!
I would put some ice on it for a few minutes at a time and see if the swelling goes down. He is probably in pain, do you have pain meds? If not I would get some metacam or buprenex, and give him some that is correct for his size and weight. I am not sure if heat will help or not.
Metacam, Buprenex are pain meds that I have posted in my first post on this thread. Natural ways to kill pain would be to put an ice pack on his foot for a few minutes, as long as he can tolerate the cold. When you can get to the vet then I would take him in and have it checked and probably get some pain meds.
