Hey everyone. Last week of my externship and I graduate my vet tech program..woo hoo. off subject a dog came it an assumed pit mix. This dogs feet, front and back, were splayed terribly. At least 1/4 inch between each toe. The entire paw touched the ground, completely flat. Didn't help the dogs nails were on their way into the pads. We did X-rays for a limp and the femoral head wasn't in the socket but the socket was completely flat. Working in a inner city clinic i see this often. This dog just made her first birthday and already in terrible condition. After all that her splayed feet, does that come nutrition or bad breeding since her hips are shot already ? She had torn ligament in both knees also. We only X-ray the caudal half of the dog. Couldn't imagine what else we would have found.
