    I'm no expert but maybe he needs a shot of Bo-Se to help him get started. Here is what I know so far..BoSe only need it if they come out with bad leg problems that don’t straighten out in a day or two or if weak legs.

    Good Luck.

    There will be others on here to help you out.. Make sure he is getting enough to eat.

    I would keep trying to get him up, and see how he does in the morning. If you do have the BoSe shot that would be good as well. YOu may need to keep flexing his legs to get the blood moving in them.
