Front legs are bowed

Hi couple of days ago, I bought a Doberman puppy it’s 1.5 months old, unfortunately his front legs are bow, I thought it’s a calcium deficiency, but he is limping too, is it kind of normal behavior ?
Please help

Wow, that's very young to take a puppy from his mother. What has your vet said??

This is not normal. Get this puppy to the vet.

First of all that is way too young to be sold and taken from the mother. In some states that is illegal. Secondly, the puppy needs to see a vet NOW!!!!

What are you currently feeding him?
These front leg bowing problems will go away with a proper diet in the right amounts with no issue.

It is well known that puppies removed from their mother before 8 weeks can develop emotional and physical developmental issues. In some of the states it is illegal to do this to a pup that has a good mother.

I hope you took this pup to the vet and I'd like to echo what everyone else is saying: that is way too young to be taken away from its mother. It is illegal and should be reported.
