Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 14 years and I'd like to help with your question. Can you give me a little more information.... such as, is it painful or just that he has abnormal posture and movements in that leg? Does he still walk on top of his foot sometimes or is that just something that happened initially?
