English Springer with congenital deformity

My vet told me because my puppy (who is 10 months old) should not be hunted because he has underdeveloped pinky toes on his front two paws. Because he cannot put pressure on these pinky toes this will create problems down the road on his legs (Wrists). I want to seek other opinions from others, is this true...any other information that can be provided would also be appreciated.

Your best bet would be to talk to a canine orthopedist and get a second opinion. There are some good ones at the U of MN Veterinary Teaching Hospital in St Paul.

Good luck with your pup!
