@carmspack, for my own curiosity, do you think that the calcium supplements made this worse or more pronounced, or do you think that at this point, the calcium supplements have not yet had an affect? Is this 100% how the dog was born, or did the supplements make it worse?
you need to take this information to your Vet -- no supplements - no "medicine"
then you need to go back to the breeder and they need to know what has come from their
breeding so that , if they have any feelings or ethics , they wll STOP
this dog is a beautiful dog -- he has a beautiful spirit
go look at the picture of the dog sitting . you can see a disfigured back - the hump,
you can see that he can't get his front legs in under neath himself - he has to bridge
he leans on his right side and the dog's right side pastern is collapsing
if you were to send a picture of the dog standing I could "twin" him to one of the side views in
that web site I provided with the dozens of dogs with the same condition
I am not attacking you , and you may hate my guts , because I am pointing out a possibilty
that is difficult and scary to accept
I have to be so frank because if a vet or anyone tells you it is awkward young dog development
or needing CALCIUM ?????? or that the dog will grow out of it - then you wasting time and money ,
you need to give this information to your VET . If they don't know , then as a Vet , they NEED to
you may not be able to do anything about this - far beyond your financial means, maybe far beyond the
quality of Vet care available , I truly appreciate this .
In the meantime you need to know what you can do to help this dog be comfortable - have some
honest , effective , help , and not be sold a bunch of stuff that does nothing except line the pockets
of some one .
won't cure , won't change --- comfort
then you will adjust his exercise , the type , amount and your expectationsto be fair to the dog
Googling I found it, but no ingredients were ever listed....
