So is it possible that the super gangly sway walk/waddle is just adolescent puppy awkward growth? It's mostly the sway walk that has me concerned.
Talking to the vet and seeing if it's even necessary is definitely my first step, but I wanted to be ready to have everything move as fast as possible if she does say it'd be wise to get it checked out.
That was supposed to say "can't get OFA until 2 years old."
The sway is most likely just awkward growth stage, again just my opinion but I've seen a lot of gawky, awkward puppies between 6 and 9 months old.
