Any other Dogs with Knee Dysplasia?

Postby RedNoseSandyRose » Thu Feb 23, 2006 4:25 pm

My Sandy would have problems getting up after being at rest. This was starting to happen all the time. We went thru all types of testing on her and in time after going to 3-4 different vets she was diagnosed with knee dysplasia. She is on Duramax & Synovi-Cre for her condition it is working great and she's able to fully function.

Is that the same as luxating patellas? Never heard of knee dysplasia.

Do you mean patellar luxation? This is where the kneecap moves out its normal place (the patellar groove), making it difficult for the dog to walk normally or bear weight on the affected leg.
