    ExclamationPUPPY BACK LEGS WIDELY OPENED?

    my puppy walks with back legs wide apart.
    I took him to the wet and he said that he doubts that my puppy has gained too much weight and because of this he is having pressure on his legs..

    His weight is 7.6 kg and he is almost 3 months old...

    he is eating well..he walks with legs apart but he runs really well in the park and have no problem in walking or running but yea he slips when he turns when running and ofc slips on floor..

    what can it be? my vet has given my calcium sashes....

    and if i am feeding him too much then how much should i feed him..

    i feed him 1 and a half human regular bowl in his bowl in the morning...

    milk with water and curd in it around half cup. with half bowl dog food in the noon

    boiled vegetables with boiled chicken and little rice...

    Remind me where you are located, Enzo. Do you have dog/puppy food available there?

    I've alwasy wondered why it is custom to feed dogs milk in India. Most dogs are lactose intolerant and in most cases should never get milk....ever.

    Yes, and I do believe that this poster was told prior not to add calcium or feed milk and curd - but he did not listen. So - perhaps now his puppy has a structure issue. SHOCK!

    idk...i mean...even if gives milk then they add water nd curd in it...the bacteri in curd makes milk digestible for dogs..

    That's a great food and what I'm feeding most of mine these days. Feed that food only and don't add anything to it. You especially don't want to add anything that contains calcium (curds) since that could throw off the balance of calcium.

    To your original question, some puppies walk bow-legged until they hit their first growth spurt, which is usually about 3-5 months of age.

    We're not mad at you or anything enzo, but you must not feed a puppy anything besides a perfectly balanced puppy food such as Royal Canin. To do so could cause the puppy to have weird growth issues that will last throughout its lifetime. So no more tea, no more curds, no more anything besides its dog food.
