Thank you!Sorry I cant help as Honey has a very odd gait due to H/D but wanted to bump up so that somone maybe able to help with your question.:crossfing
I will try to get some video from my digital cam. Hopefully i can catch it at the right angle.If your puppy is truly bunny hopping, I would get x-rays of his hips. Bunny hopping is a classic symptom of hip displaysia. Hopefully what you are describing is not actually hopping.
Others on the forum are far more knowledgeable than I, but bunny-hopping is certainly a sign of hip dysplasia. Don't know, though, if what you're describing is just a pupster "growing into" is body. I wouldn't panic, but most definitely call it to the vet's attention. Keep us posted!
I really hope its just puppy thing that will resolve itself as he age.. I don't have experience on this as I've never raised puppy from this young before.I thought puppies bunny hopped for several months before they actually started running more naturally? Just like Honeysmum, I can't help out too much b/c Flora also has hip and knee issues, and she's a champion bunny hopper when she runs.
He walks normally. If I call him, he would run towards me and thats when i thought i see bunny hopping. I'll ask the vet on his next scheduled shot about this.I think it's ok in a puppy. How does he walk steps.
At 2 months, I don't think I'd worry. Young puppies are so uncoordinated and just learning how to control their muscles. They're bow-legged and clumsy with funny gaits at times.
Thank you, I will definitely keep an eye on it as he gets olderI wouldn't worry in a puppy, if they are still doing it @ an older age, then perhaps...I would take a peek @ the hips. I don't feel gait or clicking of the hips can accurately DX hip dysplasia, as there can be many reasons for it...eg: how the dog is put together...straight front, exaggerated rear... etc etc...If they are not balanced in structure they are not going to move smoothly. I was once told that any dog that frog dogged was dysplastic...My Boston and almost every puppy out of him does this : go figure!
