Is this free?
JA: The Veterinarian's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.

Hello,

Thanks for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Thank you for the pictures; that always helps. It looks like her toes are rolling inward on both front paws. It also looks like her wrist joint on her left front leg may be over extended and may be a little bit twisted inward ("carpus varus"). To tell you what is going on, and what to do about it, she should have an Xray taken of both front feet and wrists (carpi). This may be something that might improve with putting splints on, or it may be something only surgery can correct, or it may be relatively harmless. Xrays would be needed to tell you more.

Let me know what other questions I can answer.

I hope you were able to see my response! Can I answer anything else?
