5/24/07 Hello, Easty westy is a genetic trait that is not associated with nutrition. It is however a good idea to supplement folic acid (vit C). For a good supply of calcium use plain yogurt at 1 tablespoon per meal. DO NOT give calcium in pill or tablet form! This is shown to increase the occurance of hip dysplasia. Back to the toeing out...all you can do is love the dog and hope it outgrows it. With luck you might see it diminish to a less noticable level. Best Wishes, Tony Keiser 314-471-6721 tony
