Social network for pugs and their people.
Last week Miley started with a slight limp, me being me "over protective" took her straight to the vet. Thinking they would say shes pulled something or got something in her pads. But no they said she had a Luxating Patella. We were referred for an appointment with the specialist (which was yesterday).
We had our appointment with the specialist yesterday. Miley definatly has a Luxating Patella but she is only grade 1, so she doesnt need an operation. She said it may or may not get worse obviously if its gets worse we will have to re-think about the operation. She said some dogs can go through life without the op and it doesnt bother them and doesnt cause pain. Shes is off the pain relief and anti-inflammatory and is now on "sqnoquin" which is a Joint support supplement. She is able to come away with us and play, run and do lots of walking as we planned. Feel so much better.
The nurses and "our" vet always make such a fuss when she goes. There were two other dogs in the waiting room yesterday but the vet only came over to Miley for cuddles. Bit mean on the others but she so deserves the fuss! They call her "pugalicious"
She had to be hopitalised last year for a few days. When we collected her our vet said the nurses had been arguing as to who would take her out for a wee! The vet also said they had but notes on her records saying "needs to be hospitalised" so she would have to stay in longer. So nice to know she is being well looked after when we go there.
