Patella Surgery Both Legs
Well, our Lola saw a very qualified surgeon yesterday for a Luxating Patella in her left leg. He diagnosed her with grade 3-4 in her left, and surprise, 1-2 in her right. She is only a puppy 7.5 months old and he reccomends surgically correcting both Patellas while she is young before too much damage occurs. So, having done alot of homework we have agreed to surgery on Thursday. I'm just sick about the whole thing, very worried about the after care and keeping a puppy sedentary. Just sick about putting our sweet girl through such an ordeal. Logically I know it is important to address this now for her quality of life and I have to be confident that it will be a success. It's just so sad that a puppy has to go through this. Is there anyone out there that has had both legs done at the same time?
