Does anyone have the recipe for the diet and supplements to correct this, that is actually written here but similar to how a recipe looks? My head is buzzing with 8 pages of posts and I just want to help our puppy. He's more bowed than knuckling over but I'm willing to put in the work, just need an easier way if looking at it. Thank you guys so much!

1 cup of Taste of the wild Salmon

here are all the additives to his meal.....cod liver oil, apple cider vinegar, and yogurt!

After pouring the kibble into his feed bowl I add 1 "tea spoon" of cod liver oil....if you look at the dosage instructions on the label one pump equals 1 tea spoon so thats what I add. I then mix it around untill all the kibbles in his bowl are shiny with oil.


I then add 1 tea spoon of yogurt



Before i mix all the yogurt in I add the 1 tea spoon of apple cider vinegar directly on top of the dollip of yogurt.

Now I mix it and Vui'lla' ( or ta-daa! for us americans) the dinner is served!

He likes it!


Google Carpal Laxity and there is a ton of info. I'll post before and after pics of my friend's dog. It is amazing.
Seems this post from page one is pretty clear and known to work.

Like Joe said it’s a pretty basic recipe in the first page post and I can personally attest to its success. If you want it more in recipe format here:

1 cup Taste of The Wild Pacific Stream
1 tsp Cod Liver Oil
1 tsp Plain Yogurt
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix the oil in the ToTW and stir until kibble is coated

Add yogurt and ACV and stir until mixed

I fed my two this mixture twice a day and continued for about 3-4 weeks after the knuckling seemed to resolve. I found it successful after only a few weeks. Good luck

Thanks everyone, I just got home from the store and picked up everything you guys have listed. I had to get the capsules of the cod liver oil though, which I have read worked fine, just break them open.

Thanks again for your help & patience.

If you’re changing foods, I would suggest changing the food over a couple days to prevent stomach upset. Mix the two foods together and throw in some canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling but real pumpkin) to keep the chance of diarrhea down. Once you have the food switched it shouldn’t be a problem. You can add the other stuff as you mix the foods as none of that should cause any problems but I wouldn’t just switch the food entirely at one shot.

I'm trying not to get discouraged. We've only had our puppy on this diet since January 7th. It just seems that his knuckling isn't getting better yet. I know it takes time, but I feel horrible that "I did this to him."

Also, I don't know what to do about the floors in my home. They are hardwood and vinyl throughout. Unfortunately I don't have the funds to purchase multiple rugs for him. Any suggestions, guys?

I feel like an awful puppy parent.

they have boots for dogs, so maybe find some with grippy bottoms, and see if he can get more traction with those. Have patience on the food.. it takes a while for the proper balance of nutrients to affect his limbs.

Indie offers good suggestions. Make sure you try to keep him from jumping down too much. Up is ok but limiting the impact on his front legs jumping down will help. We had hardwood and vinyl throughout as well but kept the DD contained in one room as much as we could and put rugs and carpet in that room for them. So maybe if you can buy some cheap rugs for one room and try to confine him in there when possible it may help. Like Indie said, give the food some time. It WILL work. And don't beat yourself up! YOU didn't do this to him. If anything giving him better care and food contributed so if you had any contribution at all, it was in taking GOOD care of him!

Thank you guys for the kind words. I'll have to look into getting boots for him. He had an appointment at the vet tomorrow for de-worming. I just feel awful.. I want to take him for walks, as exercise is suggested, it just looks so painful on his paws..

Best exercise for him is to frolic as he wants on grass/dirt, as opposed to going on walks down the sidewalk. Get a lunge line of about 30', and take him to a grassy area where he can explore. Play with another dog is great, too, but avoid dog parks like the plague. Maybe look into a puppy class where they allow the pups to interact and socialize at the end, in a controlled environment. I miss living near a dog club with that indoor turf they use in the NFL... it was so soft, and almost like real grass.

Good luck at the vet tomorrow, let us know what they think!

I have a 9 week old pup that shows signs of knuckling over, going to change her food from 4 Health puppy food at 27% protein. But want to make sure I’m reading everything correct and everyone is suggesting to switch them to a low protein ADULT dog food? Looking at Blue Buffalo or Royal Canin adult food. First time ever dealing with this, taking her to vet Tuesday but know I should switch her food to help! Any helpful information is greatly appreciated!!

Read this thread from start to finish. It actually has a breakdown of what to feed to get the legs back to normal again.

I have read through totally and want to make sure it’s TOTW ADULT pacific stream food at 25% protein correct? Not puppy formula?
