eliyah I know he's gorgeous, thanks Also costed a handsome amount :P

Yup, his hips are perfect (apparently). He's grandson of our national champ (VA) and his parents were SG1 and SG2, and he walks just fine... so I think chances of hip dysplasia are far and few between.

Thanks for the link to the thread, but is there anything I can give him as supplement for better bones and muscles?

There was an older thread on here about carting to improve cow hocks.

robeangyalchen He is a good looking pup, handsome.

This is my first GSD so i am cannot comment on the legs, i am sure some experienced member will chime in, there are lots of them here

Edit to add: does he have a good hip? does he limp when walking?

Hi thanks, but I've created an album named "Jack" with his photos taken from different angles.

Sure, will upload pictures tomorrow. The breeder says there were no guarantees at the time of purchase and now it's my headache.

Thanks

how to improve cow hocked pup?

Hi folks,

Hope ya’ll are doing good!

First thing first, since I live in a small town of Pakistan, we don’t have qualified vets around.

My GSD pup is about 7-month old and in perfect health other than his hocks… he is purebred, from champ bloodlines. He seemed ok till he was 3 mo, but then I started feeling if he’s cow hocked, and now his hocks touch each other when he’s standing (sometimes even cross each other). I just want to know is there anything I can do to improve his condition?

Additional info: I take him for a 30-min walk in the morning and play with him in mud/dirt in the eve (as suggested by a friend) for about 30-40 minutes. I also give him a tablet that has calcium, vitamin D (and couple other components) once a week.

Look forward to your insightful suggestions.
Sincerely,
Ali
