My 14 week old girl has a lazy back leg, I have read somewhere that you can give something to help I believe it's something to do with calcium or some sort of deficiency in vitamins but can't remember what can help.
Has anyone heard of anything that could help?
Thanks

What do you mean by lazy?

You can give joint supplements... we use Movoflex.

I wouldn't start giving joint supplements until the dog stops growing- which means at around 12-18 months of age.

Let me try to explain lol. When we walk Maisie and give her a little run I think every now and then her left back leg seems to hop like it isn't going to the floor this only happens when running when walking it seems fine. My wife says I'm imagining it because I've been reading and looking for a problem since we got her. My wife maybe right lol. I had seen somewhere that pups can have a slow leg or something and they grow out of it but I could be getting confused with something else lol.

You better start breathing. She’s only 14 weeks old n it’s every now n then she’ll lift her leg. Simply keep an eye on it but I think she’ll out grow this. She’s still a puppy. I wouldn’t give any supplements at that age. Instead get wild caught frozen whole fish. Head n all. Like sardines or herring. Give it as noon snack, add a teaspoon of coconut oil or EVOO in one meal per day. Get oils in her but from food. If a puppy is started off with proper food you really don’t need any supplements especially at that age. Mine are 3 n 4ish n started giving them CBD oil every other day as maintenance:)

Is your username because you like Marvel comics? If so you could have named Maisey "She Hulk", "Storm" , or "Jean Grey" . Just kidding.

Good shout but I doubt my wife would approve of calling her Hulk lol. Maisie is a little lady not a big bruiser:lol:

Wouldn't hurt to ask her about "She Hulk" . Especially if she likes Marvel comics too. LOL
