I have always heard it was a calcium deficiency had a bluetick pup with it and give him calcium supplement. was told that weining pups to early can cause it cause they are cut off the nutrition momma gives them. fast growing pups need all the nutrition they can get. leaving on momma till ten to twelve weeks will help avoid deficiency from lack of calcium.

Had one last summer with it bad. Vet gave me some stuf called clorite. It was for horses but it cured it in 2 or 3 days. Think the vet charged me 5 dollars for a lb bag. The overal heath of this pup after using this was amazing. I will ptobably give it to all the pups I raise rickets or not. Its just a vit and mineral supplement you mix with its food.
