Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he been like this?

How is he walking funny? Favoring a leg? Dragging one? Walking backwards or crab-like?

Any chance of a fall or injury?

Any swelling, soreness, boney crunching, or instability when you feel his legs and hips?
