Hi, i have a 1yr old Papillon. she has just been diagnosed with 2 rear patellar luxations. Her left is worse than her right. i would say they are a Level 2-3. Me and my partner are discussing surgery as the vet suggested. I just want to know if anyone has experience with any papillons having this condition and had/not had surgery and what their outcome was & if it is really worth the surgery. When the patella pops out it does not cause her any pain at the moment & has been going on for about 2-3 months. I think her condition is genetic rather than Trauma. Thanks guys!! x
I dont have an answer for you but have the same problem with my 2 year old male pomeranian. We just adopted him and have noticed that when he trots or runs, he frequently picks up one or the other rear leg. He doesn't seem to be in any pain, but I'm concerned of problem down the road. I'm bringing him to the vet tomorrow to get him checked out. I'll let you know what they say. Thanks.
