Hi everyone! I've been a lurker on these boards for a long time, but I was hoping that someone could provide some insight.
Sora, our GSD mix male unneutered pup, is going on 7 months. We were at the dog park today, and a woman stopped me to tell me how bad his hips looked! She asked me if our vet had ever said anything to me, and I told her no, vet hadn't mentioned anything. She said she was concerned and would get it checked out.
Anyway, I know this isn't the best video, but does his gait look really off?
Should I be taking him to the vet? What sort of questions should I be asking?<<<<<
We only know his mom, and her hips are OK (but he's a rescue so who knows about 'dad'!)
I always kind of attributed it to being a clunky, uncoordinated puppy, but now I'm worried it may be something more major.
He does have some looseness/sway to the hips, but he doesn't sit oddly, can stand/run for hours and hours (if we let him), and doesn't appear to be in any pain.
Thank you in advance for any help you might offer!
