I have a 7 week old going on 8 weeks old Great Dane puppy…

Good evening I have...

Good evening I have a 7 week old going on 8 weeks old Great Dane puppy and noticed that his front left paw is turning out words away from his body should we be concerned

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the puppy?

Well I don't know if there's anything wrong with him yet he's playing and he's eating so he's not in pain but the foot going in a different direction is concerning us

Veterinarian's Assistant: Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the puppy?

Now other than that he's healthy he's got in his first round of vaccinations and he's taking some medicine for anemia which I've learned is common in puppies this young

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Are you able to take a picture of the leg? Is he limping on that leg at all?
