Customer Question
of months his paws collaspe...
I have a small yorkie, 6 lbs., about 9 yrs old. This last couple of months his paws collaspe when he runs or jumps off something. His little front legs are turning in like he is pigeon footed. He doesn't seem to be in pain, but he doesn't want me to mess with his feet. He also licks his paws alot. I'm wondering if it could be something wrong with his tendons. Could you please help me.

I am a little upset. I gave an outline of my dog Friday Nite. The $19.00 has already been subtracted from my banking acct. I feel that I would like another Vet to look at the notes. Pam
