Zoey has luxating patellas grade 4
My husband took me to a friends house to see her new baby yorkie. He told me the breeder didn't want the mother of the baby anymore. She can be mine if I want her. I have a boy yorkie his name is toby. When I brought the girl home I found out from the vet. that she has luxating patellas grade 4. The vet said he was really disappointed at the breeder that she let her have another litter. I want to help her but alot of the things I read on luxating patellas say they can live with this without having surgery. I don't know If she's in pain. She don't seem to be but she does lay around alot. Zoey's back is bent too so I don't know if she has Arthritis.

That's pretty sad. Sorry breeder too that would continue breeding her with her knees so bad. Did you vet recommend surgery? Every thing that I have read, 4 is pretty bad and surgery need to be done.

Aww If you can afford the surgery if she needs it it would be nice to take her away from someone who isn't interested in her well being.

Not only is the condition itself extremely painful, but it will cause severe arthritis which will compound the pain, and ultimately probably shorten the poor pups life. I have been through 2 LP surgeries and know it is hard, but the surgery on LP that severe is the only way to go!

I believe that if she is not showing any pain then you should not do any surgery on her. I guess if she would be in pain she would be lame. Is she walking with three legs?
