Lacey's Knees

by sands904 on 11/19/2007 at 8:27 PM in Lacey

Well, it has been over a week since our visit to the vet to have Lacey's leg checked out because of her limping. It has been very difficult to keep her inactive, like the vet told us to, but we have done our best. We have been giving her the medicine the vet prescribed also. I have not noticed any more limping which is great. Hopefully she will be okay and not need the surgery after all.

Lacey's Latest Vet Visit

by sands904 on 11/10/2007 at 9:42 AM in Vet Visits

Last night we took Lacey into the vet to have her leg checked out because she had been limping on and off over the past week. She would be running around chasing Logan and then limp for a minute and then be up and running at top notch speed again. I checked her foot for any sign of foreign material or injury. I rubbed her leg and hip area to see if there was anything wrong that I could detect, but of course I am not a vet and had no idea what to look for. I had heard about the knee problems that toy dogs were prone to so I thought we had better take her in and have it checked out. Just as I feared she had a Luxating Patella. For those of you who don't know this is a common condition in small dogs where the kneecap pops out of place. There are different grades of Luxating Patellas. Fortunately, the vet said Lacey had a grade 2 in her left back leg which was the one we noticed her limping on and a grade 1 in the back right leg. The vet told us to limit her activity for two weeks and gave us some anti-inflamatory medication to give her daily. It is proving very hard to keep her inactive. All she wants to do is run around and play because she is still in puppy mode. Hopefully, she will be okay and not have to have surgery...
