    Hi Everyone -

    I am looking for any advice on helping my friend's dog living with luxating patellas. I feel bad for the little guy.

    Also, can anyone give any advice on living with three breasts. That advice is for me.

    Thank you.

    living with 3 beasts? which kind? human or furred?
    luxating patella usually requires surgery. My former boss' dog had this and ended up with surgery. You have to limit stairs and getting off/on furniture, in/out of cars. I know it's not cheap to do the surgery (her dog one knee was about $1500!!!!!) but you really have to limit the jumping

    any help with luxating patella

    My dog always had a Stage 1 luxating patella and fortunately, I found that glucosamine and chrondroitin is a great remedy for it.

    I buy Happy Hips which are dehydrated chicken breasts with that in it. You can get them in Target for $6.49 a bag.

    Re: any help with luxating patella

    My SIL's Yorkie had luxating patellas as well. The Vet said surgery was needed but she put him on Gluc/Chron as well. It solved the problem and saved him from surgery. It does likely depend on the severity of the problem, also maybe the size of the dogs, but I would try supplements 1st then consider surgery if the problem persists.
    As for the issue with 3 breasts in the OP ... try google and see if there is another forum or information that would be more helpful.
  6. Have you consulted the vet already? An operation is needed to correct the condition.
