Hmm, personally, I'd take him to the vet. It'll give you peace of mind, if nothing else .

He looks like he is in the beginning of a bone growth problem which can be caused by several different reasons. What are you feeding him?

Looks like potential knuckling.. just make sure he has surfaces with good tread to walk/play/run on and it should just go away on its own.. if it worsens, he may need splints. The less tile or slippery floors, the better.

Tried to edit to add to my post, but too late. Read the puppy sticky above about "Overgrowing Your Puppy..." It will help you understand the importance of nutrition for LB puppies.

He needs to be fed Large Breed Puppy food not regular puppy food. Regular puppy food is designed for rapid growth while LBPF is designed for slow steady growth. Read the sticky I told you about. Change to LBPF asap.

Any puppy that matures at 60 lbs and over is considered large breed by kibble makers.

A lot of people on here have raised their pups on Innova Large Breed Puppy Food. I have recommended it before as it is a good food for LB puppies. Not really a fan of Blue due to some problems they didn't respond to quickly.

There are many helpful threads regarding recommended food brands here. The best food brands cost more but are worth it. I would get him evaluated to help the situation sooner.

Does this issue happen to run in his genetics?

From first glance everything looks wonderful. I would obtain his genetics and do the background research. Dobequest is an excellent place to start looking back if the parents have recognized champion lines.

did the breeder tell you anything about their health testing? The status of the parents as far as but it limited to hips, eyes, skin, thyroid, vWD and cardio?

What is the name of the kennel/breeder you obtained Dodger?

This is not the type of problem researching Dobequest is going to help and not the type of breeders who are able to help.

I suggested a decent large breed puppy food that will grow your pup up to be healthy and should be in the same price range as what you were feeding. Again many people on this board have raised their puppies on this food with excellent results.

There are several others you can choose. Orijen LBPF is the best, but you will pay dearly for it...again it is the best dry kibble out there. Acana LBP is okay, but not a whole lot better than the Innova, imo. Nature's Variety LBPF would be another one I would recommend. Between Acana, Innova, Nature's Variety, there is just not that much difference.

You can also feed an adult kibble, but only if it states on the bag that it is an "all life stages" food.

I was just trying to keep things simple.

You can feed him a boiled egg once a week and give a couple of bites of cooked or raw meat with his evening meal. At his age, I would lightly cook the meat as you could have a problem with salmonella if he ate any contaminated raw meat, unlikely it would cause a problem, but it has happened to puppies before.

I would start giving him 500 mgs vit c right now after his morning meal. If it makes his stools loose, break the vit c in half and give 250 mgs. In a couple of weeks bump it up to the whole pill or give the other 250 mgs after the evening meal. When his is around 4/5 months start giving 500 mgs after morning and evening meal for a total of 1000 mgs of vit c a day. Keep this up for the life of your dog. I also suggest adding fish oil or krill oil at around 5/6 months or so. You can give human vitamins of c and fish oil. Give him a 1200 mgs fish oil pill every morning for life. When you give fish oil, you must give vit e as fish oil depletes the body of vit e. Give 200 mgs morning and then around 8/9 months you can add to the evening meal also.

Try reading the DogAware site below about suppliments. The ones suggested are what I recommend as a minimum and give my dog every day plus others.

Read this for dog food education: Choosing a good kibble (dry dog food)

I have two sites below which you can research foods.

Forgot to mention that if you are taking your pup on leased walks, besides short training sessions, stop.

You can allow the pup to play all it wants, but leased walks are not good because a puppy can overdo himself trying to keep up with you and cause knuckling over. We have had at least one case of leased walks causing knuckling over that I can remember.

Dang, there is so much to know really...don't buy a huge bag of food for a puppy. You need to get a size the puppy will finish in 3/4 weeks or less. The vitamins in dog food will loose their strength after 4 weeks or so.

I'd take him in for an exam.

When I fed kibble, mine did better on "All Life Stages" Adult foods as puppies. My male from many years ago was on a Large Breed Puppy food and did fine too.

I see that you're in SA. May I ask who will be doing the cropping?
