Lame swan

Hi I have come across a lame swan it cannot use one leg just carries it

I took it to a vet who said itís not broken and to give some physio therapy it can swim but canít walk

There is no wildlife help where I live.

Vet has given pain killers and some liquid medication to help pick up the appetite and all seems to help he is now bright and eating well and happy to shuffle along but not busing his Les still any advice to help

Apparently he was caught in a fishing hook

Sobefore I got him to a vet

If it using his leg in a few days I will take him back. But any advice would be great. I think his jock joint seens to be a bit warm. Would he have infection and thatís what stopping him using the leg
