Current Problem - he won’t eat he doesn’t move much and he falls when he climbs. His legs look bowed and they get stuck behind his head sometimes. I thought it’s cause he’s young but I read too much about MBD and now I’m worried. Should i force feed him? I am scared to hurt him so I barely touch him as Is.
