Eating disorderr, and problem with legs

First of all, hi to you all. I am a new member.

I have an issue with my dog, he is 4 months old and he has a problem with his front leg. Whenever I go out with him, every second step it is like his shoulder jump and you hear a bump, like you are disjointed and it gets back. He can't walk really well, it is like he limps because of it.

And another problem is that he refuses to eat, is it maybe related to that? I have to force feed him, stay next to him and wait some time and give him a little food over time and then he goes for it.

Any help would be appreciated.

How long have you had him.

How long has this been going on.

Is he heavy in weight.

Not eating could be parasites .

Your dog needs to see a vet. My guess is he is in pain- from the shoulder problem and pain will make them stop eating.

Please take your little guy to a vet ASAP. You don't want to delay getting him help as it could become a permanent

problem that could have been fixed.

For a month and a half

A few days, and he is dragging his back feet a little

No, he does not eat much and he is somewhat light

We got pills for him to clean him

have you had any contact or discussions with the breeder.

they need to know. If they are at all "reputable" , ethical , they need
to know as a data collection for making decisions for future breedeing.

if you got the dog from a byb , then chances are they do not care .
You are on your own.

Poor dog.

where exactly are you seeing this "jump" ? Is it at the top - scapula , withers ,
or is is at the join of the "shoulder" with the leg - chest level .

one is muscle attachment , the other is joint , and there can be dysplasia there.
would need to see a picture (side view) and or video to see how much of this depends
on conformation .

not eating -- don't sit and force feed . This can become a problem .

what are you feeding?

dog DOES need to see the Vet .

does the refusal to eat have to do with a shy dog who feels pressure if you stand watching
him -- does he have a lack of digestive enzyes - bile , does he feel totaly uncomfortable after
eating -- bloat , and so avoids the experience.

contact breeder
contact Vet

I am not following your issues. You started a thread saying..I have an issue with my dog, he is 4 months old and he has a problem with his front leg.

Now I read this.....he is dragging his back feet a little

Only answer is S E E A V E T !!!
