    i am of to the vets tomorrow as roxi is walking very weird and i suspect she has luxating patella, plus she has a problem with peeing and not realising it, and also to get some info on when i can get her spayed. i hope all goes well tomorrow, i have booked a early appointment so i can get it out of the way.

    Good luck with her!! If they do diagnose it find out what grade and don't jump into surgery unless it's grade 3 or 4 if surgery is suggested you may want an orthopaedic surgeon to do it!

    Hope it all goes ok

    hey all i went vet and they said that she has infact got luxating patella and also hip dysplasia, the vet didnt say what grade the luxating patella is at just that i have to minimize her walking, not the best news but atleast it aint the worst they did also say that they may want to take a x ray at the same time as her spay just to see how her hips and knees are. and that she will most likely need surgery later in her life,
    i forgot to ask if there was anything i could give her to help her knees does anyone know?

    Sorry to hear that,
    I think glucosamine and chondritin may be helpful but it might be useful to make a new thread in the health section. Lots of people who have similar conditions over there

    There is something called synoquin that says helps restore developemental joint damage either genetic breeding or due to increase in weight during growth phase, A friend of our Lab was on it for hip dysplasia, might be worth asking your vet about, you would be able to get it from them, but if so pre check out the price on line, its non prescription and you can get it at vet pharmacies Vet-Medic - the same medicines as your vet at consistently low prices. is one place. Our friend was paying much more at the vets until I told her about on line.
    Other than thaat cosequin would probably healp it contains glucosamine and chondrotin which is important for cartilage and synovial fuid production which would aid the joints. again you can get this from the link too.
