Ever see a dog run, yip, and continue running on 3 legs?
Or a dog who's walking do a hop skip and then walk stiff-legged or with a limp for a few seconds?
Chances are these animals suffer from a condition called luxating patella or trick knee. Their kneecaps are dislocating.
Our handsome Cockapoo Simon had been falling up the stairs since he was a 10-week old pup. We thought he was just clumsy, but he would hit a stair, his kneecap would dislocate, and he would dive head first into a riser. His condition became very noticeable when he was about a year old.
This ebook describes Simon's diagnosis, surgery, and recovery from trick knee surgery. If you have a dog diagnosed with this condition or you suspect your dog suffers from luxating patella, this ebook is a must-read. You'll find out what questions to ask your vet, how to prepare for surgery, and what to look out for during the recovery period.
