"Valgus" actually refers to which direction the paw points to. This thread is more than 2 years old, but if the dog did suffer from a bone malformation due to the growth plate closing, it would be a permanent condition. If the deformity causes problems, it can be corrected through surgery - procedures that correct this kind of condition actually cut the bone and place it into correct position and then a plate is used to fix the bone into this position while the bone heals.
