We had one break his leg just below the knee. I cast it but after 10 days I didn't like that he was not using his leg so took the cast off and recasted it.
Today was five weeks and we took it off and it looks pretty good. Lots of bone has covered the broken part. We let it go in his pen and I think it will be fine. It is a bottle baby so we will be able to call it up for a check in the morning.
I know they will heal by themselves but I can cast a leg if I have too so why not help it along so it heals quick.

Injured deer

My wife and i are owner/operators of Two Hearts Wildlife Rehab in the upstate of SC. We just got in a little button buck that was hit by a vehicle. His front leg is SEVERELY broken. We have the bleeding under control. What is best to do for him. The leg dangles from just above the knee. What is the b best way to splint, or what is your advise. He is very alert, but allows us to handle him for electrolytes and wound issues. Thank you I'm advance for any help.
(our vet is great, but being self-funded, we can't afford another call this month.)

It will heal on its own.
