Poor boy. He has carpal valgus, a deformity of the front legs where the two long bones grow at different rates, leaving his legs crooked and painful. We won't know how crooked and painful for a few months – the bone growth might even out and he'd be fine. BUT he's also broken his right front leg (jumping off the couch). So now he's in a splint for a couple of weeks. It's awkward and makes a thump as he walks.
And he gets car sick. He drooled all the way to the vet and back. It's hard being Earl. Second breakfast will cheer him up.
