BluePitPup is an unknown quantity at this point
Knuckling over.....

I took Apollo ( 8 week old pit pup) to the vet, she said he has signs of knuckling over on one paw. I read on another forum about adding the cod liver oil, Apple cider vinegar, and vogurt to 1 cup of food. If I do this, is it really necessary to have an x-ray done. His paw is no where near as bad as other pictures I have seen on here. Thanks in advance.

I would say no but that's just my opinion. Both of my pups knuckled and the regiment suggested fixed it within a couple of days. I would never suggest going against your vets advise but why not try the regiment for a week or two and then if it doesn't improve get the x-ray? Also make sure you limit the impact on the front feet. No jumping down, try to stay on carpet or grass as much as possible, ect....the more you can lessen the impact and the faster you use the regiment, the quicker it is likely to help.

I would say you can wait it out for a week or two and see if the food makes any improvements. The X ray maybe trying to rule out something else?

I would say, listen to your vet but at the same time give the regiment a try to see if it is helpful for your case. In most cases you will see improvements but as I always say, it's better to be safe than sorry.
