not atypical for a baset hound or mix not conformational correct but that are a lot more arount that are not correct than are.he does look a little asymmetrical in joint angles on front
Pano in general is very painful for the dog. In bassets it general starts at 5-7 month but occasionally latter. The quick diagnostic took is to guage the dogs reaction when squeezing the bones in the middle not at the joints and looking for indication of pain. Unlike other orthopeadic condition Pano cause pain in the middle of the bone not at the joints.Not tender to touch and no heat that I've noticed. ...or what I've read here as the "pano..." sp? thing which sounds like it resolves on it's own eventually
Most limping is the result of a soft tisue injury. Strick crate rest for a week or two would be curative for all but the most severe sprains and strains and in the event not curitive will not cause further damage.
I have not had the need for a orthpeadic vet since moving to RI but if I did I would more than likely opt to travel to my old vet in MA Dr. Wayne Renegar at East Bridgewater Vet clinic.
On of the problem whith the basset mixes to larger dogs is they tend to have longer and smaller diameter bones. This put much more torque and strain on the joints than an typical pure bed basset would So incongurities and anomilies that occur are more likely to be a problem in a taller mix.
as a comparison below is mariah less than conformationally ideal basset hound mild hip displasia and front feet that face east and west when sitting. Yet she is one of the top agility bassets of all time still going strong at the age of 9 1/2 with neary an orthopeadic issue.His front paws are definitely splayed over 60 degrees
