I have an 11 week old(tomorrow) female puppy who is "knuckling" over in her front feet pretty bad.She has been on adult food since we have had her-so wondering what I can or should be doing to correct this? She was doing it a "tad" bit when we got her at 8 weeks old but it has slowly gotten worse..Her legs are also like "bowed" out? i guess that is the word for it(around the ankle area)..My vet has suggested giving her Vit C 500mg a day and see if that helps,which we just started just a day ago..
When she first came here she was on TOTW salmon i believe(it was like 25% protein)-I had BAD luck with that(found plastic pieces and a metal piece in the food),so decided to not take any chances.Then she was put on Diamond naturals chicken/rice adult(what my boxers have been on for years)-And she just wasn't happy with it,She didn't want to eat it..SO, A Vet friend of mine suggested ProPlan Adult chicken/rice ALS food,She has only been on that since last Wednesday.She also said it looks to be nutrition but can't seem to figure out why when being fed an adult food..She suggested if things don't change in a max of 2 weeks then switch her to large breed adult..Would that be good? I don't see much of a difference in protein/fat ect between the 2..Does ANYONE have any suggestions?? Will she grow out of this? Will it get worse? She is a show prospect puppy and I would be crushed if we can't get it fixed..ANY suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you
