Bow legged pup diet

Post by Lottiegirl on Wed Sep 27 2017, 09:21

I have a staffy x puppy that is bow legged. She has been like this since before I adopted her. This was put down to her being the runt of the litter and malnourished. The vet said to keep her on a superior diet and it should fix itself over time. The vet wasnt to keen on me feeding her a raw diet since if not done right it could make her legs worse. I told her I follow the 80/10/10 rule and she was happy with that and it is improving on raw. My question is could uping her bone/cartilage intake help or should I leave it as is?

leave it as it is. if you change the ratios you'll be upsetting the balance between the various minerals/vitamins etc.

i'd be more inclined to give limited exercise for a while so that there's no undue strain on her joints and bones. you could always add a decent supplement if you want to actually do something, though.
