  • Normal Puppy Feet (flat)?

    I've been looking at puppies for the past few months and I noticed that some of them have flat feet. Is this normal for a 4-6 week old puppy? Could the puppy being chubby or being on slippery floors be the cause?

    It's a bit easier for us to give you an opinion if you have pictures

    Sometimes it's caused from an actual medical problem, other times no, but we would have to see it to give you a good answer.

      Puppy feet look a little flat to me, but I'm nowhere near an expert on what is normal or correct.

        I thought the feet on my pup's litter looked a bit flat when they were really small, but they've really tightened up. They're almost 7 weeks old now. I would think if they are reputable breeders the feet should be ok once they're older. Maybe some breeders will chime in.

          It's not my breeder that has puppies with flat feet, I was just asking out of curiosity. I will post some pictures to show y'all what I'm talking about.

            Seems to be pretty common for pup's to have flat feet for a time.
            This was Riddle at four weeks


            And at eight and a half weeks with nice feet

              I think the puppy in these picture is 4 weeks old. It seems like a lot of pups have that, just wondering what causes it and if it's normal.
