What do you feed your pup? This is a common problem especially with large breed dogs, you need to correct it as early as now. If you're not yet feeding your pup the precise complete formula for large breed dogs, change it. On the first six days of changing the food, mix the old food to the new food (50/50) then gradually increase the amount of the new food you're introducing, this is to prevent stomach upset. Keep him off slick surface and control the amount of food you give him (6 to 7 cups per day divided into 2 meals).

this doesn't sound like a balanced diet to me. please get him on a large breed puppy or all life stages kibble NOW.

Do not give extra calcium or vitamin D!!!

Just feed one of the foods Rosemary suggested and don't do any long walks. Just let him play for exercise, but make sure he gets necessary sunshine everyday, at least an hour.

Try to keep off hard surfaces, though I think that will be impossible where you live. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think your floors are usually hard surfaced.

That's not knuckling over. Really weak pasterns. Probably needs better food.

If he will not eat his food, try putting some topper. Make sure you watch out for food allergies and limit the topper you put.

CARPAL SUBLUXATION SYNDROME (CSS OR DOWN PASTERNS)

Good info in the above link.

Maybe do some research on the subject.

Hugz to your girl.
