Hi everyone, I'm new to Bernertalk and have a new Berner. Her name is Sasha and she's now 8 months old. I got her as a pup at 9 weeks old and she's had a limp on her front right leg since I got her. My vet checked her out and say's it's probably growing pains. Now she's showing signs of having trouble standing up with the rear also. Both are a lot worse after activity like walks or playing in the yard. My breeder say's they've had over 300 pups with only 4 having any elbow or displasia problems so the breeder doesn't think it's anything. Does this breed go through a lot of growing pains? Does food have anything to do with it? I feed her Eukanuba puppy for giant freeds. Is all this pretty normal or should I be getting some xrays done? I had a Black Lab with hip dispacia for 13 years and don't want to go through this again. Sasha is the sweetest breed I think I've ever known.
