HI I have a 5 month old GSD when he stands his back feet point outward and his hocks angle inward and when he walks his back right paw sometimes drags a little which is causing his nails to wear oddly. He doesn't seem to be in pain or anything he runs fine and can play he doesn't have trouble getting up after laying down. Just wondering if anyone ever came across this before any info would be great Thanks

x-rays, definitely. Then you will know whether to start with joint supplements, etc. The hips might be clear and it might be a back issue -- our boy had this problem when he was young, but I use supplements and a chiro, and he is amazingly stable compared to how he was many years ago.

def a vet, but they did a study on the benefits of ester c on the joints. but before anything, seek a veterinary opinion. good luck!!!
