Um, QUESTIONS!!! - Please help. - knuckling over

Transition slowly. 1/4 ToTW for a few days, 1/2 for a few days, 3/4 for a few days. If she gets rocket butt you can mix in some canned pumpkin, the real thing not pumpkin pie spice, and it should firm her up some.

Trying to figure this out, but after reading this thread, it seems like a puppy issue mainly. But how does it manifest with older dogs, if it wasn’t corrected thoroughly?

My foster is ~18-24 mos old and his right leg has always kind of bowed out a bit, which can impact his gait a bit.
Was he potentially a knuckler that wasn’t corrected? Is there any hope of correcting with diet at this point?
Or does he just have a wonky leg?

Oh he looks JUST like my Nala with her wonky leg. Unfortunately that’s not a knuckling situation and correctable only through surgery. It’s an Angular Limb Deformity (ALD) likely caused because one leg stopped growing before the other. The best thing you can do is keep your dogs weight down, try to lessen the impact on the front legs as much as you can (try to limit jumping down as much as you can) and supplement - I give Dasaquin but glucosamine supplement will help.

Hope that helps!

Hello I came across this forum and am relieved that there is a possible fix to my puppy’s leg problems. We got him two days ago and are just now noticing how bad his knuckling is. (Probably due to all hardwood flooring in our home worsening it I’m guessing)
He is barely 8 weeks old and I am hoping we caught it in time to fix it. I have read the forum but still need some help. My question is how much do I need to feed him daily to ensure I’m doing this correctly as in each feeding. Also I’m on quite a budget and am trying to figure out if they are any substitutes to the dog food listed. I had read someone fed theirs Rachel Ray dog food and am curious if that is something that could also be used. I just want to help my poor puppy. Any answers are greatly appreciated!

1 cup 3x a day - I would stick with the ToTW because it’s proven to work. Also put rugs down or try to have the pup on soft surfaces as much as possible. The more time you can spend outside on grass the better - keep it in a controlled environment at your house due to his age. Try to keep him from doing too much jumping down. Up is fine as they use their back legs but jumping off things or down steps puts all the pressure on the front and you want to avoid that as much as possible. I successfully fixed both my pups who knuckled using the recipe provided and following those precautions as much as possible.

For the cod oil can it be the capsules with vitamins A & D3 added? I seen that people had posted about just puncturing the capsules and pouring them in so I want to make sure I get the right stuff.

Sure can just be careful squirting. Some, not saying who Mac, have been known to squirt themselves in the eye with it! LOL

Hi! My puppy is now 9 weeks old and he is knuckling a bit on both legs (a little more on his right one). I read the thread thoroughly and got very happy to see that there is so many people with good results and that the problem can be solved. But something intrigs me: Does anyone know how the supplements work? I mean, why Vinegar? Why yogurt? What do they do? I'm asking that 'cause I live in Brazil and I won't find that dog food so I'll have to adapt somethings.

Here are some pictures of Baldur:

Thanks for having us here😉

You'll want to look at the protein levels in the kibble that you have available around you and compare it to TOTW. The yogurt provides probiotics to help the pup process what you feed and the ACV helps boost the immune system and a number of other things, fish oil is a natural anti inflammatory. It's a tested method and has had too many positive results to count and no negative results ever reported.

Thanks EckoMac.

He's currently eating something very similar to TOTW except for the protein level, which is slightly higher here (28% against 25% in TOTW). I noticed that he's put a lot of weight lately (7.2 lbs in 21 days) so after reading all of this I'll offer him the minimum recommended amount to reduce his growth speed a notch and try to find the supplements.
