Exclamation Dislocation patella please share

My 5 year old female Havanese Coco was at the vet for a well visit and while my daughter was holding her she jumped out of her hand and dislocated her right side patella the vet put it back in place and gave her. A injection metacam he said she should be better after 24 hours if not call for RX
The next morning she still. Limping we donít let her climb stairs or jump .does anybody know is this is unusual.
I always turn to you guys to feel not alone
Thank you.
please share Your experience

Well, it sounds like she injured herself jumping out of your daughterís arms. That is always a danger with a small, possibly squirmy dog. It is always possible for a small dog to injure themselves in a fall from a height. Iím sorry it happened to your pup, and I hope she rcovers fully with time!

I would have an x-ray done of the knee just to be on the safe side.

It doesn't hurt to ask the vet, of course, but I know my vet has told me that it can be very difficult to dx genetic from injury induced joint problems. Especially if they are unilateral.
