I think Peanut has a luxating patella
I noticed Peanut lift his right hind leg a long time ago. Now he is 2 years and I have noticed him lifting his leg up more and more. Usually when he is walking.. he will either lift or kind of do a little skip. He still runs, never seems to be in pain. I was moving his leg around and touching it and he doesnt mind. He is showing no pain. It doesnt happen all the time. At first I thought he was lifting bc the ground was cold, but then he does it sometimes in the house.. I am a wreck! I have to wait a week for my check so I can take him into the vet, I know the vet will want to do xrays!! Does anyone have exp with this? Or advice??

They don't haaaave to do an xray to know if they have it. Some people can feel a loose patella. A vet will surely be able to tell.
Do not allow jumping on/off furniture or things of this nature. No hauling butt. No long walks. Most vets say no to walks period, limiting it to only around the house.
