Alvin is one month shy of two years old and lost his front left leg one year ago. He swims, runs, plays, takes stairs two at a time and seems filled with joy. Lately, I’ve noticed that he makes this movement every so often that resembles bowing or stretching. He is as active as ever and, with this exception, we notice nothing different. Should we be be concerned?

Thanks for the insight Dr. Pam! That's good to know about a possible correlation between that type of movement and digestive issues. We always jump to "oh it must be pain!" around here, thanks for broadening our view 🙂

Yes, that is what it looks like. That is so good of you to share that. Is your Frankie super active? I think I've become a worrier, but the way he bounds up and down stairs and runs around in the snow had me worried that he might be injured. Thanks a million for sharing. I have taken the advice so often articulated in Tripawds.com and made an appointment with the rehab specialist for this Monday.
