Our expert says:
There are several possible reasons for this condition to develop, and x-rays of the affected limb are necessary to make a specific diagnosis. Some conditions will be resolve by themselves, while other conditions may need surgical correction. If the condition continues to deteriorate, go back to your veterinarian and ask him to look again and repeat the x-rays. If necessary, ask him to refer you to a specialist surgeon for a second opinion, as some of these conditions can lead to permanent deformity.
