• Hello, My dog has started to walk backwards sometimes and I wanted to see if this is something I should be concerned about. Thank you!

    Hi Ashley,
    I recommend that you take your pet into see a veterinarian. A new behavior of walking backward is not normal and could be the first sign of an underlying medical or physical issue. Your vet can talk to you about the potential causes of this behavior and any treatment that he needs after they have examined your pet.
