HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you.....

Expert:  Dr B replied 1 month ago.

What you are seeing is very likely just nervousness in this dog.....this makes sense considering that he is a foster....I would not be too worried about this especially at this dog's age.....

If you do not have any other questions please rate me as this is how I make money to support my family. Please give me a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have. ( You can rate me at top right of page).

Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much! DrB
