You give it time. Put it in a splint type thing, or take it to the vet, and give it time to heal. That's all I can say. Primary Advice: Take it to a vet. I don't want to be responsible for your Guinea Pig's leg to heal twisted or sideways.DO NOT TRY TO PUT A SPLINT ON THE LEG.You need to take the little guy to a vet as soon as possible do not try anything your self, if you try to heal the injury on your own you could make the broken bone worse and cause it to reform in the wrong position causing the guinea pigs leg to become usless. I wish you and your piggy well good luck. ;)you should not try to heal your pig yourself.

How long do you leave a splint on a dogs broken leg?

If the dog's leg is actually broken, then there should be a cast on the leg instead of a splint. A broken bone on a dog can take as long to heal as a broken bone on a person, which is approximately six weeks. If you believe you dog's leg is broken, but haven't yet taken the dog to the vet, please do so immediately; a splint is simply not adequate to help the bone mend. If your dog already has a splint, then wait for the vet to remove it.

How can you heal a chickens broken leg?

As soon as possible you need to immobilize the chicken and splint the leg. position the leg straight, and pad the splint so it will not rub. popsicle sticks are a convenient item to make a splint out of. make sure the splint will not poke or irritate anywhere, and keep the chicken in a small cage or even a box for at least a week. During this time make sure he has plenty of food and clean water available. Since chickens cant see in the dark, if he was in a box you'd have to take him out a couple times a day to feed and water him. Check the splint often, and change it if anything seems wrong. keep an eye out for infection if the skin is broken- antibiotics may be needed. Chickens can heal amazingly fast. I would keep a splint on for at least 2 weeks, I dont know how long it takes for chicken bones to heal. Human ones take 6 weeks.
