    11 weeks definitely means a milk-based feed. If he's in good weight, doesn't have leg issues, then he doesn't need anything. Just keep him out of mom's food - separate for feeding if you have to. ...

    I see a bit of thrush on a frog that has shed some of its back half. I see contracted heels and a shoe job that's not allowing the ground contact the frog needs to develop well.
