Hi,
I know this was years ago, but I have a nine week old lab puppy and her front right leg is like this pups leg. I'm so worried. I've been to the vet, but she didn't look as bad in front of him, so he said leave it a couple of weeks then they could sedate and X-ray her. She limps now and again after playing.
Any suggestions please?
Thanks, Gill.

LOL...Talk about a zombie thread!. Hi GillSK... So sorry to hear your Lab and her front leg. I can only add, Jai has grown into a beautiful, confident, and very gentle, adult. I actually had forgotten about her front leg, until this thread popped up. Looking at her, one would never know she ever had a problem. She runs daily with my daughter and is quite active. I do know my daughter actively massaged the leg...whether that any any positive effect on it, we will never know.

Umm...in the first post she was a foster I thought??
I've done it myself, of course. Would love to see a picture of the pretty girl now!

Looks like HOD (hypertrophic osteodystrophy). I'm a Great Dane person, and that is a common condition in the breed. It's very painful for the puppies but fortunately, it is treatable with proper diet, rest, and steroids. Dane puppies require a diet of adult dog food with low calcium and phosporous levels. When fed a puppy food, HOD sometimes occurs because the joints grow too quickly.

Scooby: if you read the posts above...you'll see this is a zombie thread resurrected. Jai is well and doing fine. This actual condition, never bothered her at all and basically overcame it with massaging, and exercise.
