I have a question asked at the Facebook page of Dailyfrenchie, that I can’t answer myself due to no experience with the issue. Do you have any advice for Natalie?
Hi all….has anyone on here had experience with Carpal flexural deformity? My 9 week old pup (Stevie) has it. it is essentially when the front ankles bend forward (instead of back). It is not hereditary and can be caused by a number of things (including overfeeding at a young age, when with breeder). We took her to the vet, had xrays and they said growth plates looked fine and to just keep an eye on it. However, based on my extensive research, I switched her food to a lower protein diet (adult formula). This seems to be the only consistent advice I could find. There are also suggestions that I should have her from legs splinted. Just wondering if any of your frenchies have had this issue (as it normally occurs in large breeds). Thanks in advance for your help!
Appreciate any opinions!
