Animal Smiley 036 Luxating patellas

My Georgie is 12 years old. when he was a pup the vet said he had low-grade
Luxating patella in a back knee.
It flicked around a bit never serious enough to bother him. By the time he was three it started to go away - After 4 years it has gone entirely.
This is not unusual and recent literature supports the fact that the
condition can go away with age.
He has no sign of it now. I will try to find the research to post.
Gillian and doggie gang,
