just a few questions?

1. one of my pups legs shake when hes siting almost like tremors or like when you are over flexing you muscle is this a concern or what do you think about it. Now when walking or running or just playing I see no problem and he doesnt seem to be favoring the leg at all.

2. he seems to get hiccups alot special after eating well they seem like they are hiccups. now its not just when he eats so I now it not the food but just wasnt sure if this is common or if there is anything to stop it.

3.it seems that his movements are not consistent. when he goes poop it will vary from hard to liquid. nothing in his diet has change it just is constantly loose the solid and so on. Not sure why this could be happening but it doesnt seem to bother him or change his energy level at all.

any thought would be great and if any other questions Ill try to answer back soon

Thank you

I don't know about number 1, but I wouldn't worry about number two. They're just puppy hiccups and they're really common when they're younger and active. Kane used to get them allllll the time when he was younger, but now, at a year old, he hasn't had them in a month or so.

As for number 3, Kane's used to be like that as well. I noticed that his movements were more liquid-y when he ate and then was really active soon after. If everything else is ok with your pup, I'd just keep an eye on him and try to prevent him from running around and playing 30 mins before and after eating. That really helped for me. You can always double-check with the vet, of course.

How old is your pup? Number one sounds like the beginning of knuckling which can be taken care of simply by adjusting your pups food.

There just tremors from like when you prop your foot front ball on the edge of a step or something; from similar stresses in the hip during growth.. OR the worst, doesnt' hurt to check hips every 6 mos until 2, JMO I think its in the heal and knee from what you described; but better be forsure.
2. he seems to get hiccups alot special after eating well they seem like they are hiccups. now its not just when he eats so I now it not the food but just wasnt sure if this is common or if there is anything to stop it.

Quote:
Yeah,, sounds like puppy hiccups; from gorging food some pups even cave in in the belly for quite some time during growth, I consider this a form of gorging as well, pup still thinks someone wants his food.. gotta curve that and play with him and his food while he eats. JMO OR he has a belly full of worms still puppy breath that people love so much; yeah.. ever notice that disappears after your pup is completely dewormed ?? LOL
3.it seems that his movements are not consistent. when he goes poop it will vary from hard to liquid. nothing in his diet has change it just is constantly loose the solid and so on. Not sure why this could be happening but it doesnt seem to bother him or change his energy level at all.

bacterial changes in his diet, ususally the cause; Im a firm believer in Sci Diet puppy food if your insisting on a puppy brand dry food. All other food other than organic comes from 2 spots, sci di is designed by vets for the pets best interest and IMO Sci Di puppy produces the best stool and digestive movement than any other dry kibble from my experience.. All that new organic and all beef and all that is just as if you were to grind up deer or beef chuck it up with cornmeal or rice or potatoes and bake the ground kibble in the oven for a bit; you can make you own real healthy food just by buying from the butcher or meat market, if no slaughter house is near by. Bil Jac Frozen is the best commercial food IMO hands down, just follow directions on bag or feed twice a day small wiffle ball sized portions. I've had better success with my dogs using that food than any other brand.

Of course if your pet snuck some cat poo or ate an old piece of ppl food under the counter or ate some raw egg or raw meat when not use to it; they can get the ecoli and salmonela infection as well generally they are more prone to these things but as ppl continue to breed pets and diet not consisting of wild meat and raw meat the pets enzymes change; and many purebred pet dogs and some working dogs cannot handle raw food anymore.

Im a firm believer in BilJac or Feeding BARF type diet; if kibble is a must Sci Di Puppy and switch as hes closer to 2 blending the food to your organic kibble or what ever your using. OF COURSE without probably goes without being said; all vaccs and deworming must stay on schedule..

any thought would be great and if any other questions Ill try to answer back soon

Thank you
Sounds like he's doing good, its good that your aware of his every detail.. Doesn't hurt to double check hips and health. I find its good to get in good with a vet and his techs so that you can pay out the charges and they welcome you with open arms even if your not a pay if full customer.

well the same vet has been seeing him as my other cats we have used them for a couple of years i looked at the pictures of knuckling over and I dont think his feet look deformed quite like that so I'm thinking he just puts all his weight on that foot while siting I will try to get a video of it and will try to read up more about this. I will also asked them vet to check his hips since he has to go back for another dip. he does sneak the cat turds so so we cleaning more and trying to catch his butt and break him if this habit.. he not food agresive at all and I do teat him constantly to make sure any one can take the food or treat aways but he does suck it down so I will try maybe feeding half cups at a time to slow him down.

Thanks for the comments

No worries dude, your plenty welcome there are just so many variables. .I figured it was cat poo and that he's just striking that nerve to get that reflex going but to just say so without examination of your pet is just dumb; so its what I think but go to a vet, yeah; sounds like a good deal. on his feeding you can slow him down buy putting a heavy bowl upside down in a flatter bowl pooring the kibble around it, there are alot of tips how to slow down gorging online just google puppy gorging. Thanks for being observant to your pets needs.. OH just FYI if dogs eat cat they have tapeworms eggs, that really is the biggest cause oh tapeworms in dogs next to fleas, which will affect the stool sometimes and he will vomit at others; (although many APBTs drink til they puke; not what IM refering to) with tape worms you have to take a multiple of stool samples and because they look for eggs in the which if they are larvae already tests come up negative even with an adult 6ft long in your dog. IF any rice looking stuff is in your pups stool thats a definite positive. LOL What Im gettin at is, because you have cats you should keep the dewormer for tapeworms on standby.. just to do it no more than every 6 months.

7-8 months is a little late in the game for knuckling to begin to develop. If it's persistant I'd talk to your vet about it
