Hi, I am from Bengaluru, India. our puppy is about 4 months old. His teething problems are reducing. But I am a bit worried about his hind legs structure. I am attaching a recent video

If you have some video of him walking that would be helpful. You can upload the video to YouTube then post a link here.

He looks very healthy and shiny :) But his hind legs seem to long for his body. Maybe he will grow into them. I'm no expert though. Someone will come along with more insight into this.

We've had several Indian users come here who were unknowingly potentially creating calcium problems by feeding calcium tablets, based on veterinary advice. It seems to be common vet advice in India, but it's exactly the opposite of the advice given in the US and Canada (and probably Europe), where the emphasis is on the calcium/phosphorus ratio of the diet -- achieved through a good puppy food.


Over the years, I recall a few Indian pups that seemed potentially to have rickets.


Can you get access to a reputable international brand of large breed puppy food? I think I've seen other Indian users post that they have easy access to Royal Canin. If so, here's an example of food would support slow, steady puppy growth:

or this:

(RC isn't my favorite brand, but I know there are limited options for large-breed puppies in Asia, and this one is frequently mentioned as readily available.)
