I took Rosie last week to see the vet. He examined her, watched her walk, and told me I could rest easy, that she didn't need surgery. He told me that she did have luxating patella on the one rear leg, but rarely do small breed dogs needs it repaired. Prescribed Rimadyl for 1-2 weeks, and told me to try and limit her jumping. So far so good! She is using it more, limping much less.
A few days later she developed a yeast ear infection, so I was back to the vet for more meds. Poor baby! Still, she is happy and sooo loveable !
