Puppy walking funny…

    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.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
