The first step is to know the cause of the dog’s ectopia, and then treat the cause. And what are the causes of dog ectopia?
The first consideration is whether there is a problem with the angle between the dog’s femoral head and the femur? The reason why the dog’s hind feet are outwardly oriented is because of the poor hip structure, which causes the dog’s poor walking posture. When the angle between the femoral head and the femur is greater than normal, the dog will walk on the outside. When this happens, the dog can be taken to a veterinary hospital to have the angle between the femoral head and the femur corrected. The normal angle between the femur and the articular fossa is 90 degrees, but if the angle is tilted back, the dog will walk at an angle of eight, and the femur and the articular fossa need to be corrected to a normal angle.
The head of the femur may be dislocated medially in the joint socket due to structural malformation of the hip joint or traumatic dislocation, resulting in an ectopic walk. There are also congenital deformities of the dog’s joints or deformities of the joints due to disease, or changes in the alignment of the joints due to rupture of the ligaments, which can cause an ectopia, or even if the deformity is not related to the lower joint or hip joint.
And want to correct their bad habits, can go to buy vitamin B12 and vitamin D3 two are intramuscular injection, can also be separated from the front and back of the four legs intramuscular injection. Five to seven days is a course of treatment. For puppies, reduce the amount by half. After the intramuscular injection, also pay attention to whether the dog has an allergic reaction. You also need to take calcium, calcium, iron and zinc tablets and calcium phosphorus tablets, as well as joint health tablets, which need to be eaten for fifteen days in a row, and then stop the medicine for three days, if there is still no improvement that eat another week, and then stop the medicine for two days, and then you can repeatedly eat this way. In the treatment of dogs during the external eight, you can also use some elastic cloth to hold up the front legs, and other plastic such as bamboo sticks and chopsticks and other brackets, you can fix the dog’s legs four-dimensional, leaving a little of the dog’s paws can walk normally.
