    I was trimming Bella's paws yesterday, as she isn't due a full clip yet, but I wanted to neaten up the paws. I noticed her left back leg clicks comewhere in the hock area when I manipulate it by hand. She seems perfectly sound, and showed no signs of discomfort when I was holding her paw. There is no inflammation in the area either. Does this merit a vet visit, or just wait and see for a while?

    I think you have to decide this. I would assume that there may be a joint issue but it isn't serious yet (and may never be).
    I would start her on supplements, and chat to the vet next time you are there.

    My previous boy had luxating patella's in both his legs so I know it's not that (at least I think I know as this is very different, and lower down in the leg).

    Rona, I think I will start her on glucosamine and chondroitin supplements:) Will get some next time we go to the vets,a nd ask him to check her leg as well.

    perhaps he had it to a greater degree :confused: some are really bad with it and some just have the click when you lift the leg, some 'knuckle' over on them looking as if the joint is back to front so to speak.
