Vet has recommended BO-SE to us before for something that sounds similar to this.

Yes BO-Se will help and the legs will straighten in a week or so. I just had one over at the front knees and he has started to look much better.

We gave 1/4 cc to 1/2cc IM depending on size of animal but we know our area is short on Selenium so find out if your area is selenium deficient. Selenium can kill if given too much. We are talking about BO-SE and not MU-se as MU-se is five times as strong as BO-SE.
