I know this is going to sound horrible, but feeding canned food exclusively for a week or two to lower the protein and splinting the leg really works

Here are carpal splints >

What premium brands are in your area? To find the good stuff you might have to check the smaller mom and pop stores. Here is a list of the top canned dog foods.

If you find a food you are not sure of just ask Very Happy

ok so since ive changed yogis food to eagle pack holistic large and giant breed puppy, he has almost completely normal in both legs, id say hes at about 90%. this food really does work wonders he seems more energetic and playful the last 3-4 days too. He is also getting pretty fast now, little sucker is hard to get a hold of Rolling Eyes quite a change from last week when he wasnt able to run 5 feet without falling flat on his face. His feeding schedule is as follows.

8am: one cup
1pm: two cups
7pm: one cup

Thanks to everyone for all there input.
