    Hi guys!

    So my 2 month old Silkie Mix I noticed about a week ago was favoring her left size. I noticed that her toes were pointing out to the left, away from her body. I also noticed that it feels like she has a bump or deformity on her left hip area.

    over the past couple of days it seems she has gotten worst, he other leg ( the good one) now slides out from underneath her in attempt to support her other leg. When she walks, it seems like she has to lift her whole left side and and places it forward.... and he bad leg still only points away from her body.

    i dont know what you do!! any suggestions on what could be wrong with her? or how I can help her?

    Thanks
