Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum

So we brought this goldendoodle home with us. The golden retriever rescue took him to a vet who said he was healthy and the vet documentation says no health problems. However since bringing him home ( a 4 hour road trip) I've noticed his back feet are slightly pigeon toes when he walks and when he is running at fast speeds he starts hopping on his back feet. So now I am thinking hip displasia. I have called the contacts at the rescue and no one is returning my calls. He is the sweetest boy and I am estimating his age more at 4 or 5 not 2 or 3. I don't know what now. I don't want to return him as the place he was at was awful. I have a vet appt for him early this week. Now what?

I sure do hope that Mac turns out to be healthy and he's just a pigeon-toed boy, but if the time comes, I'm on board to help, too.


My insurance has a 12 month waiting period on hips

Libby looks pigeon toed sometimes, when you are watching her from the rear.  But it's nothing - just the way she is built.  Try not to worry until there is something to worry about!!!!!  Easier said than done, I know!
