Front legs question

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Postby luvmyangels » July 27th, 2006, 12:20 pm

With Knuckles having issues with his hips we have been watching him much closer. We noticed today that when he stands his front feet do not sit straight but rotate out in an angle. One is worse than the other. Is this normal?

Not really but some dogs toe in or out, there are all kinds of "faults" regarding fronts . Look at these examples, it could be just how he is "put together" rather than compensating for his bad hips.

I agree; sounds like he is just easty westy...meaning feet turning out

Thanks for the link with examples. He looks a lot like the toeing out example. My poor defective baby. I love him no matter what.

He has been taking an herbal supplement which seems to be working. But I noticed he moved kind of weird tonight. I need the vet out east to look at him again. You may have heard of their office since he is a really good homeopathic vet especially when it comes to cancer. It is the Hampton Vet Hospital out in Speonk with Dr. Wen and his associates. It is about a 45 minute or so ride depending how much I am speeding at the time. LOL.

Dr. Wen's former student, Dr. Lu is in Stony Brook, should that be closer for you. He is located across from the SB train station on 25A.

Thanks for the info.. That would be closer. Although I like taking the ride out. I had gotten into a conversation with the associate that took care of Knuckles and they do not believe in giving all the innoculations every year. Which made me happy.

I guess you must be a fellow Long Islander.

Yes, I live in Setauket.

I used Dr. Lu for 2 of my dogs when they were diagnosed with cancer. Although I lost both of them within months of each other, I felt his homeopathic treatments helped support their weakened systems.

Feel free to pm me of you want any more info. on Dr. Lu.
