4 week old puppy that has larger front paws

Hi. I have a four week old female puppy. Her front paws are noticeably larger than her back paws? I know that a puppy has growth spurts. I wanted to ask before rushing her to the vet over nothing. Is there any kind of diseases that could make this happen?

Larger front paws
by: Michele ( Benji, Rebel & Rambo

You leave me worried .. Did you breed your female puppy, or have you bought her..At 4 weeks old, she is FAR, FAR too young to be separated from Mum.. As for her front paws.. my Benji also had front paws a little larger than his back ones, but I bought him at 8 weeks old, and his paws were and are normal size.. Having had three minis from my Accredited Breeder previously I bought him at 8 weeks.. Normally she does not let her pups go before they are 10 weeks..

All puppies appear to have front paws larger than normal - don't worry, he will grow into them!
