    My 9-week old Yorkie puppy is very playful and active, but I noticed today that when he runs, he does so somewhat sideways. His hips are not center to the rest of his body. He sits and walks just fine with no inclination of a problem… I have just never seen a puppy run the way he does. I was just wondering if this is normal and he will grow out of it, or does it signify something serious that needs to be checked out? The puppy visited the vet before I received him a little over a week ago and the breeder did not say anything about him noticing a problem.

    Thanks!

    Also, is there a specific brand of food that is best for small yorkie pups?

    Hi Kristin-

    For a puppy to run funny is common and probably normal however there may also be a chiropractic mislignment. If this persists or gets worse a visit to a vet chiropractor would be a good idea.

    What you do regarding feeding is one of the most important decisions you ever will make regarding the long-term health and well-being for your pup. Take a look at [url]https://www.homevet.com/petcare/diet.html[/url] and [url]https://www.homevet.com/rules.html[/url] for my views on diet and puppy rearing.

As you will read in my articles, you should also be feeding some (or mainly) fresh food.
