Dr. Gregg :

Hello and welcome to just answer. I'm Dr. Gregg and I will try to help you today. Pending hobbit has been on a balanced feed ration, the two most likely causes could be a slipped tendon in the affected leg or Mareks disease. Your vet can help with the slipped tendon, there is no treatment for mareks disease, unfortunately. I hope this helps. If you have further questions feel free to ask.
