    Default puppy sits with paw out to the side

    Today I noticed that Bella our 3.5 month old puppy sits with one of her feet out to the side. She runs around and doesn’t seem to be in any pain. What could this be? -4af896b2-d865-4401-b357-ac5d3efb4bfb-jpeg

    They both look about the same to me. How are her feet when she walks? If you are worried, you could add some bone meal(maybe a spoonful) each day.

    Photo is distorted but for me it looks not only like outward paws but also like a down pasterns. It happens sometimes in dogs, and this condition can be inborn and connected to elbow dysplasia or happen because of bad diet. It is better to ask your vet, they will tell you if it just your dog looks which are affected or there is something more sinister to it. Don’t ignore it, because bulldogs have significant body weight and if it is something more serious then you will need to do something about it.

    I have heard that the outward paws can be connected to diet and that it can be corrected up until about 7 months of age or so. I would talk to the vet.

    Outward paws is not normal. If she just sat like that one time, no problem, but if she is like that all the time, not normal.
