    Will do. I forgot to ask the vet but did you still take him on long walks? I was taking Pickle out for about a mile and she loves the walk but I don't want to over work her leg.

    yea, but we did about 3/4 mile with him every other day, shorter walks daily. He was not much for long walks, but it was due to his allergies not the knee cap.

He also said his 2 yrs old EB has the same problem but he is doing fine without the surgery. Otherwise he said Pickle is very healthy.
    Colossus has this too. I just watch him walk/run to make sure hes not in pain. That was what impressed me about Dr Armstrong he went right to the trouble spots and checked them first (a couple of times). I got two or three "may or may not cause problems" with Colossus, but then got a dont worry about it and keep your eye on it. Im sure Pickle will be just fine.

    Now I just have to find the sweet spot for his weight. Growing so fast its crazy.
