Lady at the dog park says my 8 month old Lucy has hip dysplasia
Lucy is 8 months old and for many months we've noticed that she walks and stands a bit pigeon toed in her hind legs. She displays no discomfort, decreased ability to walk, run, get up, lay down, etc. I asked the vet about it and was told a gait or stance like this "is normal for Shepherds".
Tonight at the dog park a lady declared very matter-of-factly "That's hip dysplasia". I told her what the vet told me, but she did her best to try to convince me otherwise.
My question: does anyone else have a pup with that pigeon toed stance, and is it indicative of dysplasia?
