    Default update on mr buddha

    hey guys so earlier today i went back to the vets office for buddha because he is still limping . well apparently he has a luxating patella. my vet explained it to me which is apparently the patella shifting out of its socket. he told us that we could wait it out and hope that it would get better but that it could also get worst and ultimately result in having surgery and become more expensive, than just having the surgery now. hes worry that if we let it try and correct itself that the ligament inside the knee could snap and become painfull and would never properly heal. with that said henry and i decided to go ahead and do the surgery its been 2 months and his limping hasnt stopped so we schedule surgery for the 21st. has anyone had experience with a luxating patella ? i always get nervous with surgeries because of the anesthesia ?

    I'm sending y'all much love & prayers for successful surgery.
    If you have confidence in your Vet, let go of worries and let
    GOD watch overall of it. Hard to do as we love them so much.
    Please, keep us updated~GOD bless Buddha!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Yes, my boy had this and it is actually somewhat common in our Bullies .... Nitschke had torn his ACL which caused the LP, his LP never really healed right, but it never stopped him form getting around and he rarely showed any type of limp. The recoery is tough as you have to restrict EVERYTHING they can do, no steps, running, jumping,etc.

    Let me know if you have any specific questions and I can help

    Ok thank u so much I'll make sure after surgery he stays put the closer to Friday the more nervous I get specially because my vet is so over protective with Buddha he's keeping him till Monday just to keep an eye on him . Which sucks because I've never been away from Buddha for more than a day. But at least I know my vet cares about my Buddha last eye surgery he would call us every day to make sure that he was doing fine
