weak hock???
 
has anyone had any experience with a gsd with a weak hock on one side?

signs of symptoms and possible outcomes would be most appreciated

If you feel your dog may have a weak hock, you could take various pictures of him and post them. There are some good folks here that can help you.

I've been told my gsd has a weak hock on the right side, I'm just seeing if anyone has had experience with this and how/if they managed to deal with it.

It's hard to tell in pictures, more when she walks.

Anyone?

Rear right leg has a twist to it when walking, and occasional nail scraping on floor due to the twist.

Just hoping someone has seen this before and has any ideas?

Can you take a video with your phone and upload to YouTube - then you can post the link or imbed the video here. Try to get someone else to walk her, so you can get some different angles. I would do behind her, her walking to you, from the side at her level and maybe also from the side while standing up.

I struggle writing on a forum lol.

I'm only looking for some advice, stories, insights anything really.

My 9 month aged twists her right leg outwards when walking, from her lower leg, not the hip. It doesn't happen with the left leg, she has no pain, no problem moving, jumping, running and generally acting like a lunatic.

I was advised it is a possible weak hock or long metatarsal due to growing fast, so looking to see if any one has had this is their gsds and how it turned out.

She is working line, not show line and hasn't been spayed yet

well we cant give advice stories or insights when we cannot picture it in our minds what this looks like
it does not sound like a typical or familiar problem
a video would be most useful

Ok, I will try and get a video next time we go out walking.

Another thing I meant to mention is she doesn't do it when walking round the house, only when we are out
