Let me start by saying my pup is a raw feed pup. I have her on seameal, alfalfa, and a puppy vitamin too. She eats like a champ. The last week or so I have watched her back legs go from normal to looking like she walks like Gumby. I was told to give her D3 daily and that this is a normal growing stage, but it doesn't look like anything I have ever seen before. Anyone else has seen this? Here is a short video of her walking, you can see some of it.
Oh, and ignore the yard, they take every toy they have, including towels, outside and I bring them back in.
She looks a little stiff in that leg IMO. Is it possible she may have accidentally hurt herself a little or something? A better video would help, maybe if someone could hold the camera while you walk the dog around? Another thing is that the dog looks heavy (Could be the coat though) which can contribute to problems. Can you feel the ribs easily or do you need to apply pressure?
got a little sea sick watching it over and over again to actually see the dog --- it could be a function of her conformation - . Is it my eyes or is there a little concave area , either from hips protruding or muscle lacking on her right rear leg . Both sides look uniform so problem on both sides. Definitely looks restricted . Can't make out whether her croup is short and steep . Best thing to do to allay your fears and take positive steps for long term is to do a prelim x ray.
Thanks for all of your replies. I think it is time for a vet appointment. I can get into the best vet around next Monday, so I will. I am worried about it. Someone told me it was a supplement problem, I think no.
