Problem with hooves

Hi All
I am in the UK, and desperately need some help! A Reeves Muntjac deer has made his home in my garden, which I'm really enjoying. As he's become a bit more used to me, I've been able to get close enough to see that he has a problem with his hooves. He walks around and only occasionally seems to 'spare' them by shifting his weight. He is in excellent health apart from this. He has been with me for nearly two months now and there is no sign of them getting better or worse. I'm trying to find a vet who can help, but it's very difficult, and it's hard to find information on the internet too. I would be so grateful for any information or advice anyone can offer.
Thanks for reading.
